Salvation Army kettles in the Western US sporting new signs and QR codes!
And, our local staff who supervise kettle activity will also receive peel-and-stick QR Code decals to use on the sign, at their discretion.
QR codes are high-capacity barcodes that can be scanned by a smartphone. Once scanned, the code will connect the user to an interface where they can make a mobile donation (similar to a text donation) to benefit their neighbors in need through The Salvation Army.
Each QR Code is customized so that the donation will automatically be designated to that particular community where the donation was made!
Here are some photos and step-by-step directions for using the QR Codes. Keep in mind, your code reader may function a bit differently.
