The iconic Salvation Army red kettles are a familiar sight every Christmas season. But what are they doing out in July?
The Western PA Division of the Salvation Army is celebrating “Christmas in July” in Allegheny County by fundraising at various locations throughout the month.
Divisional Director of Development Fran Brace says the Salvation Army is filling a $64,000 funding gap created by last year’s shortened collection season.
“Thanksgiving was later, and so that definitely had an effect on us raising dollars to help people in need,” Brace said.
