A Christmas season program called “Shop with a Hero” will be conducted by the Hendersonville Police Department for students from each of Henderson County’s 13 elementary schools. STAND T.A.L.L. has been invited to participate and sponsor at 10 students for a Christmas shopping spree.
STAND T.A.L.L. will join with other first responders from all over the region to participate for this community outreach event. Each members of STAND T.A.L.L. will be paired with one of the students who are given $100 each to spend at Wal-Mart store in Hendersonville at this “Shop with A Hero” event.
The students chosen to participate are selected by their school counselors based on a set of criteria that includes financial need, leadership potential, some with a need for a boost in self-esteem, and others who are consistently giving back to their classmates, schools and community.
We need your financial support to help us sponsor our ten elementary school students from our community for this year’s “Shop with a Hero” event. Your donation will assure that these children, many of whom come from homes with financial challenges, will have a unique, personal opportunity to bring joy to their families through this program.
We hope you’ll consider donating what you can to help us reach our $1000 goal to provide sponsorship of ten wonderful kids for a shopping adventure that can make all the difference in the world to them and their families this Christmas season.
