Look for the Red Kettles outside Texarkana and surrounding area stores and businesses, Monday through Saturday, beginning now until Christmas Eve.

This year the Salvation Army is making it even easier to make a donation.

Captain Juan Gomez, the Commanding Officer of The Salvation Army in Texarkana stated in a press release;

“With fewer and fewer people carrying cash, we’re also offering several cashless ways to donate. Donors can give on their smartphone, using Apple Pay, Google Pay, PayPal and Venmo right there at the red kettle.”
