Every community has them—people who work to make the lives of neighbors better. Sometimes they are part of a volunteer organization, sometimes they act on their own. They are block captains, they organize the neighborhood cleanups, run the soup kitchens, raise money to send the neighborhood kids to college. They do it because the community needs it and because they feel it's the right thing to do.

Here at NewsWorks, we want to help recognize the individuals who make our communities work. Tell us about a local hero in your community.
