Several local businesses and non-profits came together to make this event happen.

On Monday, Grand Blanc police held their annual Shop with a Cop event for local kids.

Barb Smith (who just happens to be our first recipient of Pat & AJ's Holiday Helpers) is the chairperson of FISH in Grand Blanc and has helped to bring this program back after it faded away a few years back. She pairs kids with officers, who then drove them over to Walmart in Grand Blanc to go shopping.

Gift cards were provided through donations - $200 for the kids and $100 for their parents. After shopping, they enjoyed dessert. Aubree's, Walmart and FISH are just some of the local sponsors that make this event possible.

Thank you to EVERYBODY who put this together for these kids!
