RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) - Do you know someone who is making a difference in our community? The Personal Injury Law Firm of Allen, Allen, Allen & Allen is now accepting nominations for its Hometown Heroes program.

"We are just so blessed that we have so many people in our community that are doing so many good deeds," says firm President Trent Kerns. "It's somebody who makes a difference in the lives of others. We have awarded to police officers, to teachers, to daycare workers...a large gamut of folks can be heroes."

Kerns says the word hero has many definitions, and it's up to the community to decide who gets time in the spotlight. Past honorees have included Brian Rich, who sends supplies to troops overseas. The Spence family was recognized in 2012 for overcoming the death of 18-year-old Avery in a car crash and giving back.

Allen, Allen, Allen & Allen holds community events to name the Heroes publicly. In past years, honorees have been a part of a Richmond Flying Squirrels baseball game and a concert at Innsbrook After Hours. This summer there will be three awards events in Richmond, Charlottesville, and Fredericksburg.

Nominations are being accepted until May 23. A committee will review them and then announce the winners on July 1. Nominations are being accepted at all Allen, Allen, Allen & Allen offices and online.
