Join the Tradition of Christmas

When you volunteer as a Bell Ringer, you do more than spread Christmas cheer, you give hope to those in need. We are looking for individuals, families, fraternities, sororities, businesses, and student organizations to come ring a bell for The Salvation Army this Christmas season.

Want to Donate to a Red Kettle?

Give us a call at (979) 361-0618 or fill out the form below. The Salvation Army also accepts online donations to help support our various programs. Online donations stay local to help those in need in your community.

Not Able to Volunteer?

We understand that for some, finding the time to ring a bell is extremely hard to do. So this year we are making available the opportunity to sponsor a local kettle.  Did you know that for every kettle location that doesn’t have a volunteer to ring a bell, The Salvation Army has to pay for a bell ringer? You can help this Christmas by sponsoring a kettle to offset the cost of a paid bell ringer, for when volunteers are not available. The cost of a sponsorship is $100 per day, per location.
