FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -- The sound of money dropping into Salvation Army collection kettles will have another ring to it this holiday season: the swiping of credit cards.
The Salvation Army of Broward County and some other affiliates across the country will be using a new kettle that has a slot for credit cards. Mastercard, Visa and Discover will be accepted.
One of the credit friendly kettles will be put to use in Fort Lauderdale on Tuesday.
Not all chapters are going for the switch. Maj. Thomas McWilliams of the Salvation Army of Palm Beach County says they're waiting to see the results before using the credit kettle.
