South Dakota Highway Patrol received a donation of several hundred dollars from Beef Bucks this holiday season.

Bob Montross, who founded the the nonprofit organization that focuses on beef promotion and education with his wife Nancy, said the Beef Bucks are donated to the Highway Patrol and are from there distributed to law enforcement members and their families who may need help due to illness or other hardships during the holiday season.

“Everybody’s got a soft spot in their heart,” Montross said. “We just think the Highway Patrol’s a pretty good outfit.”

Beef Bucks are pre-paid checks that can be used to purchase beef in a variety of forms, including meat from the grocery store and hamburgers at local fast food restaurants.

Montross said the nonprofit has been making the same donation to South Dakota Highway Patrol for about the past 10 years.
