FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) – It may have come a few weeks late, but it felt like Christmas for a few local families at the Meijer on Maysville Road.

55 children from some low-income Fort Wayne homes received $100 gift cards and were paired with local officers to do some shopping for themselves and their families. It was all a part of the annual ‘Shop with a Hero’ event. It’s the final chance after the holidays for the families to get gifts.
