Darvin Furniture Starts Community Hero Program to Honor First Responders, Front Line Workers
Darvin Furniture & Mattress President Will Harris recently announced a new program to recognize local community heroes.
“As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact the entire nation, the incredible challenges facing first responders and frontline workers have made a lasting impact on many of us who may feel like we can only watch and offer our sincerest gratitude for their unselfish efforts”, says Harris.
The Darvin Community Hero Program offers anyone the opportunity to nominate someone they feel is a hero during these challenging times. Every week, the nominations are posted on the Darvin website and Facebook. Visitors can vote for that week’s favorite hero. Each week, the winning nominee will be announced. They will receive a Darvin Furniture gift card as recognition and move on to the Grand Prize drawing. A new group on nominees will be added for the upcoming week.
“Unprecedented times require unprecedented responses,” says Harris. “The jobs these community heroes do for all of us is very hard on them and their families. Nominating one of them is easy to do and my hope is that the full impact of recognizing so many will in some small way let them know how much we appreciate what they sacrifice.”
