In an effort to provide an additional way to make donations this Christmas season, The Salvation Army recently introduced a program to accept donations via text messaging. This program will compliment other donation channels currently in place such as the traditional Red Kettle, a toll-free telephone donation line and on-line web donations.

“We are thrilled with the addition of a simple and convenient program the public can utilize to participate in our Christmas Campaign,” said Major Jonathan Welch, Porter County Corps Officer. “Mobile giving perfectly complements the other donation channels we have had in place for some time,” the Major added.

From any text messaging-enabled phone, the process is extremely simple. If the public wishes to donate $5 to The Salvation Army, they can text the word “ANGEL” to 85944. If the public wishes to donate $10, they can simply text the word “SHINE” to 85944. Your donation will be billed through your cell phone service. Certain phone service provider charges may also apply.
As with all donations to The Salvation Army, the money raised in a local community stays in that community to support local programs and services at Christmas and throughout the year. In addition to mobile giving, the public can also donate by placing checks, cash or coins in a Red Kettle, by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY or by donating on-line at .
