This past Saturday, the annual Shop with a Hero event took place at the Wal-Mart in Hardinsburg.

Things looked a little different due to COVID-19. Only a few families were let into the store at a time, and everyone was required to wear a mask. However, the masks didn’t stop the smiles from coming through.

More than 30 families were allowed to shop with a budget of $200. Though children did get clothes and other items, they spent most of their time in the toy and electronics aisles.
