CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Lots of smiles and laughs fill the aisles at Cape Girardeau's Walmart as dozens of kids from the Cape Girardeau area get to 'Shop with a Hero.'
The 26th annual event kicks off at 6 a.m. on Tuesday, December 5.
80 kids will each get about $150 each to spend on Christmas gifts. They can buy gifts for themselves or use some of the money to buy gifts for others.
They'll each pair up with a local hero to get their shopping done.
The kids are chosen by their school based on their financial needs.
This is just one of several 'Shop with a Hero' events that will take place in the Heartland over the Christmas season.
Poplar Bluff will also hold a Shop with a Hero event on Saturday, Dec. 16. at 6:30 a.m. They will take 130-150 kids this year.?
