This year the Sumner County Sheriff’s Office and the Wellington Police Department participated in the “Shop with a Hero” at Wal-Mart on Sunday. This is the 3rd year this event was put on. Thanks to the staff at Wal-Mart for having the resources to put on this event. We had around 75 kids show up to shop, each one picked a hero to shop with. We enjoyed every minute helping them shop and seeing the smiles on their faces when they found the right gift. The kids could color Christmas cards to give out if they wanted to and enjoy a candy cane at the end of shopping. This event will happen every year on the Sunday before Christmas.

Again thanks to Wal-Mart and everyone who showed up to shop or help with this event.
