While the temps continue to rise outside, one local man is working to keep the Christmas spirit alive in all of us.

Henry’s Christmas Yard, located at 1504 26th Avenue Moline, is currently hosting a Christmas in July Food Drive.

Henry the dog and his human Scott Hildebrand are utilizing some fun-filled Christmas decorations to remind us that hunger is not something people only experience around the holidays. It is a year-round issue for many, and our holiday spirit is needed even in the warm months of summer.

You can stop by Henry’s Christmas Yard to witness a very patriotic display (including Santa, of course!) and drop off non-perishable food items and paper items. The items collected will go to the Tabernacle food bank, located across the street from the display.

The Christmas in July Food Drive began today and will continue through Jul 8. For more information and updates, follow the event page on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/events/2445932405628726/.
