Greene County Sheriff’s Office, Walmart Team Up For Sick Child

The Greene County Sheriff’s Office teamed up with Walmart to provide a blessing to a three year boy who is battling leukemia.

The “Walmart Heart Program” gives children with life-threatening diseases the chance to be an “honorary Walmart truck driver” where they give the child a “uniform” of a Walmart shirt and give them a ride in the tractor-trailer to and from Walmart locations.

The Greene County Sheriff’s Office was invited to be part of a parade for three-year-old Jonah. The deputies accompanied a Walmart heart truck “driven” by Jonah between the Independence Street Walmart location and the South Campbell location.

Once at the South Campbell location, Jonah was able to spend time with the Greene County Sheriff’s Deputies Craigmyle and Flora along with K9 Lor.

Walmart also gave Jonah and his family a special shopping spree.

The Walmart Heart program is entirely volunteer run by truck drivers and approximately 500 Walmart truckers are participating in the nationwide program.
