Highlighting our community heroes

I like it when organizations come up with cool ways to highlight our community heroes. Now a community hero can be a CEO or executive director of a company, but they can also be your average working mother, father or student. El Zol 1340AM recently made a call for those community heroes. The radio station is encouraging listeners to nominate heroes from all walks of life—the neighbor running nonprofit bake sales, a volunteer who serves the elderly at a local retirement home, a teacher building a school for the underserved, the community organizer bringing people together, a student who accomplishes.

The hero of the month will not only be featured in one of El Zol's radio programs but they'll also have the opportunity to become hero of the year and be the recipient of a daylong radiothon where they will raise money for the sponsoring organization at the end of 2012. Talk about an opportunity huh? Sorry government officials, but you can't be nominated. Not to say they are not heroes, but there are plenty of other people in our lives that deserve a little exposure. Be sure to visit and nominate today!
