The folks in Reading have gotten used to media agencies coming to cover the severe poverty situation there, but not many have chosen to focus on the good that comes out of a bad situation. Odyssey Networks of New York has done just that. They've produced a Christmas special called One Christmas Story: People Rich In Spirit.

After Odyssey Networks did some shorter pieces on the poverty in Reading, they decided to come back and focus on how faith has helped the people of Reading stay positive during their tough times. The special has been picked up by CBS and will air Christmas Eve at 11:35pm.
