Santa Clarita — The Santa Clarita Valley American Red Cross (ARC), in partnership with KHTS AM-1220, the Santa Clarita Valley’s hometown radio station, is asking the community to nominate their very own Hometown Heroes so they may be honored at a special HOMETOWN HEROES RECOGNITION EVENT on September 12 from 6-8 p.m. at the ARC’s new location, 23838 Valencia Boulevard, Suite 120, Valencia (near City Hall).
Hometown Heroes are people who have displayed heroic or humanitarian actions in the community – people whose compassionate and charitable actions exemplify the true spirit of the American Red Cross – people all across the Santa Clarita Valley!
All nominees will receive special recognition. One winner in each category will be chosen and awarded at the Hometown Heroes recognition event September 12. Suggested categories for nominations include: First Responders; Animal; Workplace; Senior (60 plus); Youth (through 17); Educator (classroom); Military; Adult (18 to 59); Medical; and Youth Sports Mentor.
Qualifying recognition period is June 1, 2005 through May 31, 2006. Nomination deadline is July 1, 2006. For more information or nomination forms, please contact the Santa Clarita Valley American Red Cross at 661-259-1805 or log on to the website at www.heroes.hometownstation.com.
