An Everyday Hero is a person who gives without expecting any recognition or accolades for doing so – those who selflessly donate their time and talents to help those in need or to better their community. Everyday Heroes lend a helping hand where it is needed most and serve as exceptional role models in Will and Grundy counties. Everyday heroes could be teachers, volunteers, caregivers, first responders, community leaders and countless others. To be eligible, the nominee must live or work in either Will County or Grundy County and be at least 13 years old. Click the link below to tell us below why your Everyday Hero deserves this award.
