Community members can nominate people, businesses, nonprofits and organizations for what they have done to aid their communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Representative Abigail Spanberger has launched the VA-07 Heroes program.
She is accepting nominations for the public and nominees will be highlighted on her social media accounts and official website.
According to a release, nominees can include someone who lives, works and/or volunteers in the Seventh Congressional District of Virginia, a small business, or a nonprofit or organization.
“Even in the face of tragedy and hardship, the Commonwealth has come together in this crisis to protect the vulnerable, lift one another up, and remind ourselves of our shared values of community and kindness,” said Spanberger. “The VA-07 Heroes program will be an opportunity to recognize the individuals, businesses, and nonprofits that have made our communities stronger during a time of tremendous uncertainty. Whether they are making homemade masks, volunteering at a food pantry, or delivering lifesaving medications to our seniors, their efforts truly represent the best of our district.”
She also says anyone can be nominated, including health care workers, grocery store employees, mail carriers, small business owners, teachers or anyone else people feel deserve to be recognized for their work.
