#3Heroes | Nominate someone who has made a difference during COVID-19 pandemic in Northeast Ohio

They say not all heroes wear capes. Help us spotlight people who have gone above and beyond in Northeast Ohio.

CLEVELAND — Use #3Heroes on Twitter or text a photo of your hero (or heroes) to (216) 344-3300!

Maybe the poet and civil rights activist Maya Angelou said it best. 

"I think a hero is any person really intent on making this a better place for all people."

In this time of fear caused by the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, there have been people here in Northeast Ohio who have found a way to safely lend a hand and make a difference to their neighbors, their loved ones, and to total strangers.

From the medical professionals who have been on the front lines in our hospitals and laboratories, to people like Baker and Emily Mayfield, who donated $50,000 to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, to those who have just performed a small, but important act of kindness like delivering a meal to a neighbor.

We are proud of the people who make Northeast Ohio a community of togetherness. And we at 3News want to help tell stories of inspiration by highlighting the work done by heroes during the coronavirus pandemic. 

But we need your help. 

Send us your nomination by using the hashtag #3Heroes on social media. Help us shine a light on those people who have gone above and beyond during these important times.
