BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

The Salvation Army's Red Kettle Campaign is underway and this year, the organization needs your help more than ever.

The biggest challenge this year is time. Thanksgiving came late this year and that means the Salvation Army missed about a week's worth of foot traffic.

To help make up for the loss, the Salvation Army is asking companies and individuals to sponsor kettles. Some locations nationwide are starting to take debit and credit cards as well. The Birmingham branch hopes to add that feature soon.

Residents can also make donations online at http://www.birminghamsalvationarmy.org/.
