Seven Novi students masked up to go shopping with members of the Novi Police and Novi Fire Departments as part of the Novi Youth Assistance sponsored "Back to School Shopping" event at Kohl's last Tuesday.
Each student left Kohl’s with a shopping bag full of new apparel and a backpack stuffed with school supplies that was generously donated by St. James Church in Novi. This program helps get students excited and prepared for the upcoming school year.
