There are many ways you can help The Salvation Army Harrisburg help children get ready for back-to-school in the local community. Participate in an ongoing or one-time fundraising effort during the summer.  Choose from the ideas below or come up with your own plan to help us in “Doing the Most Good.” 

· Point of Sale Campaign - Ask your customers to donate a dollar with Christmas in July recognition cards that can be posted at your business.

· Organize a Christmas or summer-themed dress down day.  Money raised to “dress down” benefits The Salvation Army Harrisburg.

· Establish a signature “Christmas in July” menu item or product (signature sandwich, member rewards card, etc.).

· Incorporate giving to The Salvation Army Harrisburg into your own “Christmas in July” sales event.

· Host a “Christmas in July” event.  We can provide a signature Red Kettle, complete with bell and apron. There are also small desktop kettles available for collection.
