The legion presented $1,000 and the V.F.W. $400 to Officer Matthew Jacobs, who is the School Resource Officer for Sturgis Elementary and Sturgis Williams Middle School.
The checks were presented during a ceremony at the Sturgis Vets Club.
Donations were collected in large part from the Legion Spaghetti Feed held at the club last Thursday.
The Shop with a Cop program provides holiday gifts for underprivileged children as they shop with a local police officer or chaperone.
