Salvation Army: Helping us to do good during the holiday season

  • Sharebar

Salvation Army provides multiple ways to give this holiday season

The Salvation Army Implements Smart-Phone Giving Options at its DFW Red Kettle locations.

This holiday season, The Salvation Army will give people a new way to donate to its traditional red kettles at more than 400 location across the DFW area. Between November 2 and Christmas Eve, red kettle stands will display two QR codes – one for a $5 donation and one for a $10 donation – that can be made by scanning the codes with a smart phone.

With fewer people carrying cash in their pockets or purses, this new opportunity provides a viable giving option for compassionate people who might come up dry if they reached for some change or a dollar.

Although carrying cash is a declining trend, more and more people are carrying smart phones. According to Nielson, nearly half (49.7%) of cell phone users now have smart phones, which is a 38 percent increase over last year.

For those who have a QR code app that reads the codes, this will give them a new way to give to help the less fortunate in their community.

250,000 Christmas Gifts to be Distributed in Five Days

Volunteers and Salvation Army workers will personally present more than 250,000 Christmas gifts to an estimated 16,000 families in five days. This is a good opportunity for photo ops and interviews directly with family representatives who will pick up gifts.
