Hometown Hero’ Campaign to Recognize Local Community Heroes

The City of Lee’s Summit and 106.5 The WOLF are once again partnering to recognize local community members who make a difference in the lives of others with the 2018 Hometown Heroes campaign. Now through March 25, the campaign is an opportunity to salute an individual or group who go above and beyond towards making the community a better place to live.

To nominate a Hometown Hero visit 106.5TheWOLF.com.  A local hero can be anyone, from a first responder to your next-door neighbor who volunteers at the food pantry. Last year several from the Lee’s Summit community were named Hometown Heroes for their selfless acts of kindness, compassion and dedication. Those actions included organizing blood drives, providing food and clothing for those in need and assisting a homebound citizen.

A hero will be selected every Thursday by the radio station and announced on-air during the 5:30 – 9 a.m. morning show.  Morning show hosts Codie and Chris will read the winning nomination and shine a light on each hero for their part in making life better for their community. Recipients will also receive tickets to a Royals game from 106.5 The WOLF.

Throughout the Hometown Hero campaign, radio spots will air featuring Mayor Randy Rhoads, City Manager Steve Arbo, Police Chief Travis Forbes and Fire Chief Rick Poeschl speaking about what makes the Lee’s Summit community great.

For more information about the Hometown Heroes recognition program, visit 106.5TheWolf.com or cityofLS.net.
