Tell us about your hero for a chance for them to win a $100 gift card.

Heroes serve others, are brave, determined, selfless, courageous, and inspirational. How we define a hero is different for everyone. Each month, Nave Law invites the community to submit people who are CNY heroes. Once a month we will pick a winner, and that hero will receive a $100 gift card. Each December, we will share each of the winner’s stories on social media, and whoever gets the most shares will win $1,000.

Make sure your hero would want to win as if they win we will contact them to congratulate them.

Why They Are a Hero?

Melissa is the chairperson of Blessings in a Backpack in Oswego. She makes sure that over 400 children have food on the weekends during the school year. Did you know that 1 in 6 American children may be struggling with access to food? The consequences of hunger are much more than a growling stomach. Poor nutrition can result in a weaker immune system, increased hospitalization, lower IQ, shorter attention spans, and lower academic achievement. Children are fed during the school week by federal government programs. She wants to make sure they’re getting nutritional meals over the weekend, too.
