Nominations open for Langley’s ‘Hidden Heroes’

Anyone in Township or City, and who acts selflessly for the betterment of others, can be nominated

Do you know a hidden hero?

A Langley initiative recognizing people who give of themselves without fanfare is now accepting nominations. Those selected as a Hidden Hero by an anonymous panel of community members will be invited to a private event to show appreciation for what they do.

Any person who helps out in the City or Township of Langley can be nominated. It could be anyone who has had a positive impact on the Langleys – a person who doesn’t seek out recognition for his or her selfless acts, but instead does them for the betterment of the community.

To nominate a Hidden Hero, visit www.hiddenhero.ca and click on the ‘nominate someone’ tab on the top of the webpage. The closing date for nominations is April 1. To be recognized, a person must agree to the nomination.

A Hidden Hero doesn’t necessarily have to be someone who is a busy volunteer.

For example, it could be a person who lost a spouse and now has to take on both parental roles in a young family.

The inspiration behind Hidden Heroes is a person who as a child would take the goods his father brought home and distribute them on the streets.

For more than 25 years he has helped those struggling on the streets of Langley, Surrey, and Vancouver, by handing out food, clothes, boots, blankets, sleeping bags, toiletries, and even wheelchairs and bikes.
