A rare breed of Alaskan “polar bears” are spotted each January in Seward, Alaska, jumping into icy Resurrection Bay as part of the Polar Bear Jump. The Salvation Army lends its support to the event, which helps raise funds for the American Cancer Society, providing coffee, hot cocoa and fresh doughnuts to spectators and participants alike. With temperatures hovering in the mid-20s, The Salvation Army is always a welcome sight!
