HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Salvation Army's annual Red Kettle Campaign is back in action, and the organization has made it easier than ever to donate to those in need.

For the first time, one can text, tweet or go to the Salvation Army Facebook page to donate and adopt an angel.

"This year, we know a lot fewer people carry cash and so they can ask about our text to give, you can text "Give For" at 71777 and you can put in however much your amount would be and we will get the profit from that,” said Stacey Connelly, Salvation Army captain.

They will kick off their Red Kettle and Angel Tree campaign at the Turtle Creek Mall on Friday at noon.
