We're looking for everyday people who help others in ways big and small, motivated only by kindness and a desire to make our community a better place.
Past heroes include a woman who bakes brownies to raise money for a TV in a children's nursing home, a teacher who invites an autistic former student to family holidays, and a neighbor with a fear of birds who volunteers to care for a sick friend's parrots.
We're looking for good stories about good people.
Send your nominee's name and a brief description of his or her selfless acts to email@example.com (put Hometown Hero in the subject line) or mail to Hometown Hero, Tribune Newsroom, P.O. Box 191, Tampa, FL, 33601.
