Here at Kaplunmarx we love being attorneys, but even more so when we get to give something back to the Philadelphia community that is so close to our hearts. For that reason when we got the opportunity to sponsor a scheme that celebrates local heroes in the Philly community – we jumped at the chance.
The Heroes Of Philadelphia Awards is an initiative that we launched this year that is all about recognizing and celebrating the men, women or young people that go the extra mile to make Philly the great city that it is. Members of the public nominate people who they consider to be LOCAL HEROES and each month we select one of these nominees and reward their endeavors with a $100 check and a Heroes Of Philadelphia t-shirt. We also promote the work they do through our social media outlets and through partnerships with local media and press, thus not only celebrating local Good Deeds, but also spreading Good News stories in Philly.
These Local Heroes can take many forms, from teachers to charity workers, to litter collectors or animal lovers. We just made our first presentation this week to Johnny ‘Scrabble’ Green an absolute gem of a fellow who gives up a great deal of his time working with After School Partnerships Philly teaching, mentoring and inspiring young Scrabble players. See the photo of the presentation below.
Take a look around you, Philly is full of wonderful people like Johnny doing great deeds for our community. Why not get in touch with us through the Facebook page, Twitter or the main HOP Awards website and nominate your Local Hero? Please help us spread the good news by liking or sharing these pages too.
