GREAT FALLS — Law enforcement officers in Hill County recently used snow as a reason to help the community.

Back in January, a challenge was extended on Twitter to all northern Border Patrol agents to collect donations for food banks with a snowball challenge.

Hill County Sheriff Jamie Ross teamed up with Havre CBP sector chief Sean McGoffin.

Sheriff Ross had 10 tries to hit McGoffin with a snowball; for every snowball that hit the chief, he would donate 10 pounds of food.

Sheriff Ross hit him eight times.

They ended up donating 180 pounds of food to the Havre food bank.
