JAMESTOWN – This year’s Red Kettle Salvation Army drive is going digital.
Because shoppers are carrying less cash, the Salvation Army says they are now using smart chips and QR codes on their Red Kettle signs allowing electronic donations.
Prospective donors would simply “bump” or scan their phones to make a donation.
The funds then would be sent to local Salvation Army units based in the donor’s ZIP code.
Supporters would then receive an email receipt.
