Honor our unsung heroes

As Thanksgiving approaches, we think it’s especially appropriate to honor those who use their energy and skills to help others. But we need your help.

We’re looking for residents of San Luis Obispo County who go out of their way to help others — through volunteer service or by rising to the occasion in an emergency, for example — and who seek nothing material in return.

Such individuals rarely receive widespread attention. They’re simply pleased with the satisfaction that comes from doing such good deeds.

If you know someone who fits this description — a friend, neighbor, teacher or committed volunteer — please let us know.

E-mail us c/o letters@thetribunenews.com or write c/o Unsung Heroes, Opinion Desk, The Tribune, P.O. Box 112, San Luis Obispo, 93406-0112.

Explain in detail why you believe your nominee is an Unsung Hero and include contact information for yourself and the nominee.

We will publish our Unsung Heroes series for the fifth consecutive year during Thanksgiving week.
