Salvation Army kicks off Red Kettle campaign with mobile donations

Salvation Army red kettles now accepting mobile payments

BIXBY, Okla. — The Salvation Army is kicking off its Red Kettle campaign Friday.

Over 100 red kettles will be on display around Green Country during the holiday season as they work to collect money for several causes -- but this year will be different for them.

Kettles will now be equipped with an option to pay by Apple Pay or Google pay.

A shorter shopping season in 2019 means less time for them to raise money for the holidays as fewer shoppers will pass them by. The new payment method will make it easier for those who aren't carrying cash around on them anymore.

The Salvation Army is looking to bring in $659,000 this year.
