Seattle, Wash. (June 3, 2012) — Help local heroes win cash for their charities by participating in the “Vote for your favorite Safeco Community Hero” online event beginning June 4.
All your votes could add up, helping the top vote-getters make even more of a difference for their local communities. The hero with the most votes will win a $10,000 donation for their favorite nonprofit organization and the runner-up will get $5,000.
Each of the 14 community heroes showcased in the voting event already has been selected to receive a Safeco Community Hero Award and a $5,000 check from Safeco Insurance for the charity they support. These inspiring individuals were nominated by Safeco’s independent agent partners across the country through the Safeco Insurance® Agent Giving Program, which is designed to recognize and celebrate those who positively impact their communities through a focus on education, health and safety or civic engagement.
“Safeco is honored to recognize these local heroes who make their communities better and inspire others to get involved,” said Brenda Mann Harrison, manager of the Agent Giving Program for Safeco. “We applaud all the agents who are personally committed to making a difference and took the time to nominate these amazing individuals.”

We’ve included photos of the heroes and those who nominated them! Individuals must be 13 or older to vote. You can vote once every 24 hours beginning June 4 until the contest ends 9 a.m. PDT June 25.
