For more than 100 years, our attorneys and staff have been inspired by those in the community who make Virginia a great place to live and work. That’s why each year, we share the stories of the Hometown Heroes that generate positive change in our community or in the lives of others.
A community is so much more than just a group of people: it’s the spirit we create when we work together with our neighbors to help one another. Everywhere in Virginia are individuals who are driven to volunteer, motivate, create, and donate to their hometowns. We call these special people Hometown Heroes.
“We find our lives in spending them in the service of others.”
-George Allen Sr., founder of the Allen Law Firm.
This year we are dedicating the program to all those people making a difference and working tirelessly during the COVID-19 pandemic. Each person selected as a Hometown Hero is using their time, talent and resources to care for our community in a new way.
After careful consideration, these 28 nominees were chosen to be the 2020 Allen & Allen Hometown Heroes because of their commitment to making a difference during these unprecedented times.
