The personal injury law firm of Allen, Allen, Allen & Allen has announced the winners of the 2013 HOMETOWN HEROES award in celebration of local acts of kindness and heroism.
This is an exciting time of year for Allen & Allen — it’s time for the firm, and the community at large, to celebrate the act of giving,” said Trent Kerns, President of Allen & Allen. “For over 100 years Allen & Allen has been greatly inspired by the heroes around us — the community members who spend each day improving the cities, small towns, and neighborhoods throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Nominations for the annual HOMETOWN HEROES award were accepted from April 1, 2013 to May 3, 2013. The public was asked to complete a nomination form in honor of their favorite local hero responsible for generating positive and measurable change in the community. “It’s an annual tradition for Allen & Allen to pause, look around, and pay tribute to the good citizens of the Commonwealth who define what it takes to be a true hero,” said Kerns.
The selected HOMETOWN HEROES represent inspiration to Allen & Allen. They are first responders, neighborhood advocates, foster parents, disability advocates, teachers, small business owners, and more. Each of the local individuals selected represent a unique and inspiring story of giving in some capacity, either on a large scale or through small everyday acts of kindness.

The winning HOMETOWN HEROES will be honored at a series of award events taking place in Richmond, Fredericksburg, and Charlottesville.
