Realtor Ring Day

Realtor Ring Day presented by the Des Moines Area Association of Realtors®

December 4, 2020

This holiday season, over 100 REALTOR® associations will be supporting the Salvation Army on Friday, December 4. Iowa REALTORS® are teaming up with colleagues throughout the nation to ring the bell. Kettles in many areas across the country will be hosted by local REALTOR® members and affiliates on this special Ring Day. This idea came from a REALTOR® member in Fargo, N.D., who wanted to give real estate professionals an opportunity to support a cause familiar to them - housing. The Salvation Army was the perfect fit because it offers so many housing-related programs. This is IAR’s eighth year participating in this great event joining over 26 other states ringing the bell for the Salvation Army.

Each year, more than 300 Iowa REALTORS® representing all 17 local boards participate in this event and typically raise between $20,000 - $30,000. Help us make a bigger impact this year! It promises to be an exciting and rewarding day! Check with your local board or association to see what plans they may have already made for this event.  Contact your Local Board and your company to get a group of Realtor® colleagues signed up for Realtor® Ring Day presented by Iowa Association of Realtors®. 

Please share and post photos on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social media channels when you Ring! Just use the hashtag #IowaRealtorRingDay!

Due to the pandemic, there are a few rules that need to be followed this year. Bells will be sanitized before ringing and wipes will be available to wipe down bells in between shifts.

  • All REALTORS® must be wearing a mask and gloves while they ring.
  • Ringers must social distance.
  • No more than 3 ringers at one time.
