NowDecatur, WSOY and Brinkoetter Realtors are bringing you “Everyday Heroes”! People and companies that are going above and beyond to help the community and neighbors during this difficult time.
Fear around public health emergencies like the coronavirus can bring out the worst in people, but it can also provide inspiring examples of people and companies choosing to be kind. Even in the midst of the crisis, people are making sure those in quarantine don’t feel alone, turning canceled events into opportunities to give back, giving of themselves and offering their business services, talents, and treasure.
If you would like to nominate an individual or company for “Everyday Heroes”, please use the form below or email HERE. These individuals and companies will be highlighted on Byers & Co (M-F 6am-9am) on WSOY 1340AM/ 103.3FM and streaming online at NowDecatur.com
