Maryborough students Shop with a cop
Grades 5 and 6 students from the Maryborough Public School had a chance to “Shop With a Cop” on Thursday.
The student shoppers arrived at the Drayton Freshmart in cruisers and fire trucks with lights flashing and sirens blaring.
The Moorefield Optimist Club and a number of local community members donated $1,200 to the event.
The money was divided amongst 12 teams with the objective of purchasing as much food as possible with the $100 without going over their limit.
Officers and firefighters encouraged students to consider factors such as unit rate and items needed for the Drayton Food Bank.
Students learned to shop, budget and the value of a dollar while supporting a good cause.
