MIAMI TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WDTN) — It was beginning to look a lot like Christmas at local Kroger stores Saturday.

The Salvation Army launched its Christmas in July red kettle campaign. The campaign runs from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday at participating Kroger stores.

Volunteers rang bells asking for donations. Several people were in the Christmas spirit and donated to the cause at the Kroger at Austin Landing. Other Kroger stores in the area also took part in the campaign.

The money collected will go to support camps for kids. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
