Cashless shoppers have a new option to give to the Army’s red kettle campaign this year using their smartphone. Leaders hope adding Apple and Google payment options will boost fundraising to the campaign, which makes up 10% of The Salvation Army’s annual budget. Those donations fund programs providing housing, food and other support to people in poverty. (AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast)

Captain Xavier Montenegro, Divisional Secretary of Program at Salvation Army, talks to Steve Dale about what the Salvation Army does and the recent lack of bell ringers asking for donations. They also discuss the summer camps that Salvation Army hosts for families in need.
