JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Salvation Army's Red Kettles will now accept digital donations through Apple Pay and Google Pay to make it easier for donors to give.
Smart chips and QR codes will be placed on the kettles in Jacksonville to help simplify donations.
For those interested in digitally donating, shoppers will be directed to a custom donation page that accepts Apple Pay or Google Pay.
The donation will then be distributed to local Salvation Army units based on the donor's billing ZIP code.
An email receipt will then be sent directly to the donor's phone.
“Kettle Pay makes it even easier for donors to join The Salvation Army’s Fight for Good. It provides an opportunity for people to fight for the millions of Americans experiencing poverty by raising money for Salvation Army programs in their communities, including food for the hungry, shelter for the homeless, and Christmas assistance for families in need,” said Maj. Biggers, Area Commander of Northeast Florida Salvation Army.
Donations will still be accepted at any of the traditional Red Kettles found on street corners and in front of stores, online at Give.SalvationArmyUSA.org, or via your phone by texting "KETTLE" to 91999.
Action News Jax volunteers will be ringing with the Salvation Army Dec. 7 at the Publix on I-295 and Bay Meadows -- come visit us and donate!
