Bell-Ringers Change Lives!

Traditional Kettles

They ring the bell to raise money so homeless families will have a warm safe place to sleep; so hungry people will be fed; so disadvantaged children receive the tutoring and homework help they need; and much more.

Individuals, Families, Church groups, Civic Clubs and Businesses are needed to ring the bell at one of our Kettle locations for a day.  Would you please consider organizing a bell-ringing group? It's easy!

Please review the attachments:

  • Bell Ringer Roster

Please note:  If you cannot adopt a kettle for a day please consider a half day. Unfortunately, it is logistically impossible to set up groups/individuals to ring for just an hour or two.

To volunteer, please contact Justin Richter at or by calling 859-252-7706 ext. 125.

Online Kettles

You can also raise money from the comfort of your home.
It takes just 3-5 minutes of your time to set up an online kettle page.
Once the page is complete simply email it to your friends and family.
