The people in our community have stepped up in a major way since coronavirus began impacting our every day lives.

Friends and family have sadly passed away. People have unfortunately lost their jobs. Many of the things we used to do, we cannot right now. That's where our heroes have come in.

These heroes have come in all shapes and sizes. They range from the first responders who keep us safe, doctors and nurses who have cared for the sick, utility workers, grocery store employees, truck drivers, public transportation workers... even our fellow neighbors who have gone above and beyond to help their fellow man.

21st Century Pools and Spas are now working to thank those heroes. Take a look below:

21st Century Pools and Spas is giving away  $50 gift certificates for local restaurants to 50 people over the next five weeks, and they want your nominations of who to give those to.

All you have to do is comment in the Facebook post above with the person you are nominating, and tell a story why you see they are a community hero.

It can be anyone. A neighbor who has gone above and beyond to help out you or someone in the neighborhood. A healthcare worker who is treating people with COVID-19. A utility worker who has been working overtime to help keep people's homes powered.

21st Century will randomly select 10 stories each week to win.
