Shop with a Hero 72 x 36 (2162 x 1080 px) (7)

Picture this

The steps of Newark City Hall with One- Hundred children and their families, police cars, fire engines, and ambulances blaring their sirens in a caravan of vehicles. But there’s no crisis. The only emergency today is that 100 children experience the joy of the holidays with those who saw value and gave for them and their families.  As if getting to go on a shopping spree isn’t cool enough, these children will get the VIP treatment with Heroes beside them cheering along the way shopping on Broad Street in Newark.

This event supports the whole family so in addition to the shopping spree children will receive pre-purchased gifts, household essentials, and resources.  UCC hopes to cover every avenue of first responders (Police Officers, Firefighters, Special Victims Unit, Emergency Medical Technicians, Paramedics, Doctors, Educators, and more).

This event creates an environment for a child and a hero to build a lasting bond and mentorship.
