Over 30 Boys and Girls Shop With a Hero for Christmas at Meijer Alpena

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisThere wasn’t a frown in sight, but all smiles, as kids and their loved ones took a shopping cart to begin their journey, shopping with a hero for Christmas that is.Wednesday night Meijer in Alpena provided 30 boys and girls with a $100 gift card to go shopping with, to make their holiday wishes come true.“They can use that (card) to purchase one big item or a lot of small items… And you see a little bit of everything with the kids and what they purchase,” Richter said.Since 1934 Meijer has been giving back to charities like shop with a hero.“Since day one it’s been about giving back to the communities that we service. We give back as a company 6% of our annual profits to various charities and organizations and this is just one of them. Being able to do this at a local level and allow these kids to come in and shop for their Christmas, which they might not otherwise be able to have,” Richter added.Partnering with DHS, Meijer provided Christmas gifts for some of the most needy children in Alpena and the surrounding counties.Store director, warren Richter said he enjoys watching each child listen to a hero’s story as they shop.“You see a lot of everything with the kids that come in to shop. You’ll some that are very serious about shopping for that mom or that dad or that brother or sister, and you see a little bit of them shopping for themselves as well. And that’s what makes it so much fun…when you’re out there and see what they’re picking out, and hearing the stories that you know the hero’s tell back. This is a very meaningful night for them as well. They enjoy this and look forward to it every year. So it’s great to be able to be apart of the community, to be able to give back to the community, and sponsor events like this,” he finished.  AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: alpena, Christmas, Christmas wishes, Meijer, Meijer Alpena, Shop with a HeroContinue ReadingPrevious Sen.

Lawyer-cum-shooter not perturbed by int’l debut at Asian Games

first_imgBy Abhishek Hore New Delhi, Aug 16 (PTI) The upcoming Asian Games, the world’s biggest multi-sport event after the Olympics, will be Abhishek Verma’s first brush with international shooting, but the thought and the task that awaits do not unnerve the lawyer-cum-marksman. Optimistically preparing to shoot at the Games, air pistol exponent Verma, 29, is a late bloomer. Daunting as it may sound for many but the strapping man from Rohtak told PTI: “I am very excited and confident of my prospects in Indonesia.” The shooting events will be held in Palembang. “I have been preparing for the Games for a while and having done the hard work, I can say I am pretty optimistic even though it is my first outing,” he said. Son of a sitting judge, Verma secured a bachelors in law from the Kurukshetra University in Haryana. Having climbed to the top of the charts with a fine performance in the 18th Kumar Surendra Singh championship and the fifth national selection trials, Verma could end up spearheading the Indian men’s air pistol team in the World Championship too. At the Asiad, Verma, who picked up the sport only three years ago, will also shoot alongside teen sensation Manu Bhaker in the mixed air pistol event. “I picked up shooting as a hobby about three years ago when my father was posted in Hisar. I used to go to a gym there and got to know that there was a shooting range nearby. That’s where I first picked up a gun.”advertisement The hobby led to Verma representing his university in the All India University Games and a fifth-place finish there made him participate in the Shooting Nationals for the first time in 2015, where he shot a below average 553. It was only last year, after being called up for trials, that he decided to seriously pursue the sport. He won silver in the Kerala Shooting Nationals in the civilian section and registered a 12th place finish in the open event. That made him go up from around 75-80th position in the beginning of the year to 12th at the end of it. Next stop was the National Shooting trials. He won gold in Trial 2 and after Trials 1 and 2 he had moved up to fifth in India and by the end of Trials 3 and 4 he was up to fourth place. This provided him an opportunity to travel to Munich for the ISSF World Cup to shoot in the MQS section. Verma shot 585, the best Indian performance in 10m air pistol in the German city. Munich was a major confidence-booster for Verma and he came back to shoot another 585 in the Trial 5 qualifications, going on to beat the likes of Jitu Rai, Amanpreet Singh, Saurabh Chaudhary and Anmol Jain in the finals to win gold. Extra two points awarded for winning meant he became the number one air pistol shooter in India. PTI AH PM PM PMlast_img read more
