In less than a month, Salvation Army Red Kettles will start popping up around the country, including here in Minnesota. Brian Molohon with the Salvation Army of the North says they are kicking off the campaign earlier than ever and giving people more ways to give.

“Text to give options, QR codes, bump technology which is google pay and apple pay will be on every single kettle. We have a great foundation to see that skyrocket.”

Molohon says they are seeing unprecedented levels of demand for their services, making this year’s kettle fundraiser incredibly important. Kettles go up on November 13th.
