    Shop with a Hero

    In December, PMS held their annual Shop with a Hero event at the Plainwell Meijer. Each year, Plainwell Middle School receives an anonymous donation to help provide over 100 students with a $75 gift card to holiday shop. Local law enforcement, as well as the fire department and EMS join the kids to help them complete their holiday lists. What a special time for the PMS students, as well as the heroes that helped them holiday shop. THANK YOU to everyone that makes these nights so special and a very special THANK YOU to the anonymous donator that generously gives to the PMS students each year.
