The Salvation Army introduces “Kettle Pay”


TOLEDO, November 11, 2019: As the U.S. moves toward becoming a cashless society, the Salvation Army is making it easier for donors to give back during the Christmas season by making a gift with Apple Pay or Google Pay at the iconic Red Kettles.


The Salvation Army has placed smart chips and QR codes on Red Kettle signs across, Lucas County and the surrounding areas, allowing shoppers to simply “bump” or scan their phones to make a digital donation.


Shoppers will be directed to a custom donation page that accepts Apple or Google payment options. The funds will then be distributed to local Salvation Army units based on the donor’s billing ZIP code, and an email receipt will be sent directly to their phone.


“I had the opportunity to test this product recently and was amazed at how simply and how quickly a gift can be made; literally in less than 10 seconds!” said Major Tom Duperree of the Salvation Army of Northwest Ohio Area Services; “I'm so glad that, in this digital age, the iconic red kettle now accommodates individuals wishing to spread Christmas Cheer electronically.”


Now in its 129th year, the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign is one of the oldest and largest charitable campaigns in the world. Every year, the campaign raises millions of dollars to provide toys for kids at Christmas, clothes and shelter for the homeless, food for the hungry, after-school programs for kids, and other services to America’s most vulnerable populations year-round.


Donations are accepted at any of the more than 25,000 traditional Red Kettles found on street corners and in front of stores, online at Give.SalvationArmyUSA.org, or on your phone by texting KETTLE to 91999.
