In times of crisis, people from all walks of life become heroes in their communities. We want to help tell the story of those who are making a difference during the coronavirus pandemic. It could be an act of heroism, gesture of kindness, or generous gift of support. Participating is easy – just share the stories, photos, and videos of heroic things you’re seeing in your local community and tag them with #neighborhoodheroes and #happywithpardee (so we can share them, too!). Watch the video below to learn more or check out our flyer on how to be a neighborhood hero.
