"Shop With A Hero" Returns For Christmas In Saginaw County

Some 50 needy children and their families from throughout Saginaw County will have a Merry Christmas thanks to the "Shop With A Hero" program.

The youngsters were paired Thursday night with police officers, firefighters, nurses and paramedics who helped them pick out Christmas presents with gift cards provided by Meijer.

Meijer also provided food carts for the families to take home and enjoy.

Student volunteers from Swan Valley High School, including an exchange student from Vietnam, helped too by wrapping presents at Meijer on Gratiot in Thomas Township.
