The Hands On Heroes program for Merced County looks to acknowledge those individuals or businesses in the community who go above and beyond supporting children in our county, in ways that embody the Children's Bill of Rights. These individuals work tirelessly, bravely overcome adversity and everyday challenges, and are seldom acknowledged for their work. These unsung heroes are directly making a difference in the lives of children, ages prenatal to 18, each and every day!
If this sounds like someone you know, then nominate that individual or local business, as a Hands on Hero. Simply submit a compelling narrative of five hundred words or less, that describes why this person or business is a Hands on Hero. Creative, heartfelt, and descriptive stories that illustrate the heroism of the nominated individual, are wanted.
For questions, please call (209) 385-7337 or (209) 381-9719.
