Jeff Dubois, one of the nine agents of change selected for Mission Possibilities, used the $100 and 30 days the PCRC and the Portage Chamber gave him to make a positive change in the community to purchase tickets to sporting events and use those to make various trade ups. He ended up with $500 in grocery store gift cards and donated them to several schools, the food bank and the meals on wheels program. (Johnna Ruocco/THE GRAPHIC/QMI AGENCY)
