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.

This Month’s Hero

We are thrilled to shine the spotlight on our February Nave’s Hero, Jon Wright, a figure of compassion and dedication in the Syracuse community. Jon serves as the Chapter Co-President of Sleep in Heavenly Peace, a remarkable organization committed to ensuring that no child in the greater Syracuse and Oswego City area has to face the heartbreak of sleeping without a bed.

Under Jon’s leadership, Sleep in Heavenly Peace has seen incredible growth, with a volunteer force that’s as passionate as it is purposeful. Since their first bed delivery in October 2018, Jon and his team have built, assembled, and delivered over 4500 beds to children in need. This monumental effort underscores a simple, yet profound belief: every child deserves a good night’s sleep in a bed of their own.

Jon’s work extends beyond just building beds; he’s building hope, one child at a time. His efforts to mobilize the community, from individuals to corporations, to participate in build days and delivery events, have not only provided beds for children but have also fostered a spirit of community and collective action. The stories of children receiving their beds are heartwarming reminders of the difference one person, like Jon, can make when they are driven by selflessness and a commitment to serve others.

Sleep in Heavenly Peace operates entirely on volunteer efforts and donations, making Jon’s ability to inspire and lead all the more crucial. His work ensures that donations go directly toward providing the comfort of a bed to children, complete with new mattresses, bedding, and pillows. Jon’s dedication to the cause and his ability to bring people together exemplify the true essence of a hero.

We are proud to recognize Jon Wright as February’s Nave Hero. His courage, determination, and unwavering commitment to bettering the lives of children in our community inspire us all. Join us in celebrating Jon’s outstanding contributions and the significant impact he continues to make. Together, we can spread the word and support the incredible mission of Sleep in Heavenly Peace, ensuring that no child in our community has to go without the basic comfort of a bed.

Jon’s story is a testament to the power of community and the extraordinary things that can be achieved when we come together for a common cause. Let’s take inspiration from Jon’s efforts and look for ways we can contribute to making our community a better place for all its members, especially the most vulnerable among us.
