The Community Christmas campaign may be a far off thought for many, but a local business is holding a fundraiser Friday to benefit the campaign.  For the eighth year, Freer Auto Body in Godfrey will be holding a "Christmas in July" to raise money for Community Christmas.  It was born out of the generosity of two young girls.

Margaret Freer of Freer Auto Body tells The Big Z her granddaughters, Taylor and Lily Freer wanted to do something to help those who might not otherwise have anything for Christmas.

Christmas in July will be held at the shop on Alby Street from 10:30-1:30.  Last year Taylor and Lily raised over $25,000 with the help and support of our community.  If you can't attend, you can still make a donation out to Community Christmas.  Call 466-6151 for more information.
