City of Athens wants to honor local good Samaritans

ATHENS, Ala. (WAFF) - The city of Athens wants to recognize people performing good deeds in the community with a new “In the Local Spotlight” program.

City of Athens communications specialist Holly Hollman shared a few examples of people who have already been honored: members of the Delta Sigma Theta sorority picking up litter on Sanderfer Road; city employee T.J. Dendy rescuing an owl; and artist Sonya Gordon, who volunteered her time to design a logo.

“If your neighbor is sick and you help them, that means something to that person. We want to shine a spotlight on people in our community doing good deeds just because they want to,” Hollman said.

When you see someone perform a good deed, send a note and picture to hhollman@athensal.us.
