MSP Sgt. Scott Bates and Trooper Brian Koboldt spoke to the Rotary Club of Houghton Lake recently regarding the Shop With A Hero program. The program, now in it's 16th year, provides money to local children to purchase gifts. The children are given a police escort to Walmart where local volunteers and civil servant heros help the children purchase and wrap gifts. The children also receive dinner at the Subway restaurant. Pictured are Trooper Brian Koboldt, MSP Sgt. Scott Bates, and a delighted Rotary President Matt Nester presenting a $1,000 grant in support of the program.
