Local Heroes to Be Rewarded by GM

The corporate responsibility is one of the most important aspects of GM's business these days. Throughout the past year, the car maker, indebted to the American tax payer, has tried to impress the crowds with the countless support and reward programs created for just about anything.

The latest such move is the launch, on February 16, of the Our Town, Our Heroes program. Meant as a way for the car maker and the community to reward and honor its most important figures, the program will pick two local heroes each month (the hero can be anyone, even you, provided your deeds recommend you for the title) and make their stories heard.

The selection of the heroes will be done online, at the following link. Anyone can log in and name the person they feel should receive the honor of being called a hero, with the public to vote on the winners.

Those who will be selected as winners will receive, for a week, the keys to a new Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicle, complete with a tank full of gas. On his part, the hero will have to inspire others to follow his example.

"At the heart of every community are heroes who inspire others with their actions, and we're thrilled to support these selfless individuals who do good without any intention of getting anything in return," said Brian Goebel, General Motors North Central Region communications manager. "We want to recognize the unsung heroes who inspire others and make an impact in their neighborhoods every day."
