JACKSON, Miss., Dec. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- To help celebrate #GivingTuesday and the global focus today on generosity, The Salvation Army is using a grant from C Spire to expand a groundbreaking technology initiative that promises to boost donations to the non-profit's Red Kettle holiday giving campaign in the greater Jackson metropolitan area.

Consumers now have the option to make credit and debit card donations at up to 12 of the non-profit's 53 Red Kettle locations in the tri-county region – thanks to the availability of giving station kiosks equipped with tablets and connected to C Spire's mobile broadband network and equipped with secure e-readers and swipe technology.

The Salvation Army's Red Kettle campaign is a hallmark of the holidays and the largest annual fundraiser with proceeds used to support a variety of year-round programs and services for the poor and needy, including food, clothing, temporary shelter, utility assistance, disaster relief and life-skill and character building programs.
