Helpful Heroes Back Home

Knoxville (WVLT) -- This weekend's Heroes at Home event aimed to live up to its name.

The Sear's at West Town Mall put it on to help families of military men and women on active duty.

Manager Tim Hawkins tells us that Heroes at Home tries to help those facing financial or personal hardships.

"It’s a support net that we have always felt strongly about and Sears has always been a very big support of our troops in a lot of different ways," Hawkins said. "It's something we can do locally and all across the nation to help some of those families that really need help."
