Salvation Army Bell Ringing. We believe in collaboration with others who are the hands and feet of Jesus. Ringing bells for the Salvation Army provides an opportunity for parents/children to ring together, which saves the Salvation Army from paying people to ring bells. It is a short term (one hour commitment) way of giving time where the experience is a genuine eye-opener. Generally we ring at Lakeside Mall’s three outdoor locations the first three Saturdays of December. In the past we have averaged $80 an hour by ringing join us, or book in a day of ringing for your own group by calling your nearest S.A. Signups begin in early November.
