Allen & Allen has always been inspired by community members who make Virginia a better place to live, work, and play. That’s why each year, we celebrate the Hometown Heroes who generate positive change 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, there are individuals who are driven to volunteer, motivate, create, and donate to their hometown. We call these extraordinary people Hometown Heroes.
“We find our lives in spending them in the service of others.”
-George Allen Sr., founder of the Allen Law Firm.
To celebrate our 100th Anniversary in 2010, Allen & Allen recognized outstanding members in the communities we serve. They embodied and demonstrated the ideals of service and action that our firm was founded upon. Honoring these dedicated citizens was so uplifting, that we made it an annual event.
Allen & Allen President Edward Allen said, “The Allen & Allen Hometown Heroes award is the firm’s way of celebrating Virginians making our community better places to live, work, and play. Our firm was founded on service over 110 years ago and we have always drawn strength from serving others.”
