Hometown Hero Nomination
Each year, United Way of Lake and Sumter Counties designates a Hometown Hero for each county. Hometown Heroes are those who have made a difference in your community. He or she has gone above and beyond, done far more than what was asked or expected, helped others regardless of who noticed, and made a difference. Lives have been changed because of what your Hometown Hero has shared or made happen. Not all heroes wear capes and most heroes don’t even consider their actions to be heroic. For that reason, who you designate as a hero, and why, has a wide range of options. We accept and consider all of them and look forward to reviewing your nominations. The Hometown Hero award and presentation is held annually and has not yet been determined for 2021. Nominations are currently open with a timeline that is currently flexible.
