Local business donates to Shop With a Cop
Ted Stinson (left), owner of Stinson Plumbing, presents Benton Police Chief Stephen Sanderson a $610 donation for Shop With a Cop. The funds were raised during a month-long donation drive hosted by Stinson in November to help ensure more Marshall County children receive clothing, food and toys for Christmas. Shop With a Cop is scheduled for Dec. 20 when officers with the Benton Police Department and Marshall County Sheriff's Office will pick up several Marshall County children and take them to Walmart in Benton. There, the children are allowed to pick out Christmas presents such as toys, dolls, shoes and warm winter clothing. Afterward, the children enjoy a free meal with officers before returning home.
