ALL PROCEEDS FROM THIS EVENT GO TO SHOP WITH A HERO. The Shop with a Hero program is designed to help children in the community who may not be as fortunate as others. Without Shop with a Hero some of these children would not have a Christmas. The children are selected by elementary school staff within the Bartow County School and Cartersville City School systems. Once selected the children are invited to shop with a hero late in December, just before Christmas. The children and their parents/guardians will then meet at the Clarence Brown Conference Center for a breakfast and then be bused out to Walmart. The children are paired with a local hero and given $150.00 of which $100.00 must be spent on clothing for that child. The remaining $50.00, the child can spend as they wish on themselves or others in their families.
All funding is donated by local citizens, churches and businesses. The EMS, Fire and Law Enforcement personnel, school staff and Walmart employees participating on the day of the event, do so voluntarily without pay.
