New ways to help out the Salvation Army

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Salvation Army's "Red Kettle Campaign" kicked off Monday.

This year, there are several new ways to donate to the Salvation Army. 

All kettles have electronic bar-like codes on them.

If you have a Smartphone you can scan your phone on the code and you will be directed to the Salvation Army's website to make a donation.

You can also donate virtually through our website WLBT.com.

The virtual campaign is called "Ring for the Ride."

It allows you to set up a virtual kettle.

Once you do that you have to encourage people to make donations to your kettle.

The person who raises the most money will receive a brand new ride before Christmas.

"On Christmas Eve Santa Claus will deliver the red Jeep Wrangler to the person that raises the most in their virtual kettle," said Captain Ken Chapman of the Salvation Army.

There are weekly prizes too.

For instance, the person who raises the most money this week will win a new television this Friday.
