By Jim Donovan:  It might not be cold outside, but hunger can happen in the summer too.  So The Salvation Army of Greater Philadelphia is launching a special Christmas in July campaign, a month-long series of fund raising events to help bridge the gap between a continued increase in demand for basic emergency assistance and a shortfall in traditional funding.

To help make up this funding shortfall and meet the needs of those less fortunate,  you will see the famous Red Kettles at a number of Center City locations every Wednesday during July.  I encourage you to donate whatever you can towards this worthwhile effort.
