Charity Bells

Charity Bells

Submitted by Abby from Missouri

Every year, Abby’s family heads to the historic Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, M.O., to volunteer as bell ringers for the Salvation Army. They help set the backdrop for the season as they ring bells, sing songs and collect donations. The cheerful, chiming bells represent a community coming together to help those in need.

“My husband's parents started this tradition when he and his siblings were young, and now we are passing it down to our little ones,” says Abby. “Each year we have a family group of six to eight adults and four children ringing the bell, collecting donations and greeting shoppers as they pass by. We talk to our children about why we volunteer and what the Salvation Army does.”
