Darrell Waltrip Automotive had a successful year of giving and sharing inspiring stories of community-nominated Hometown Heroes, donating over $12,000 to local charities chosen by the awarded heroes.
Throughout 2011, 2012 and well into 2013, inspiring stories were shared of a fire fighter's persistence to protect his city, a soldier's determination to defend his country, and a teacher's commitment to her students both in and out of the classroom. More stories were shared of a mother's support of her special needs child, doctors who serviced those without means to healthcare, and businessmen spending their weekends helping build homes and schools.
Darrell Waltrip Automotive is looking for even more nominations this year, committing to once again donate $500 each month to various non-profit organizations close to the hearts of the heroes.
It is simple to nominate online at www.darrellwaltrip.com--enter your name, the name of your hero, and a brief description of how they are making a difference in their community. The chosen hero of the month then chooses their favorite charity for DWA to donate the $500.
