This April, Evolve & Co is partnering with local brands and businesses in the Tampa Bay area to give back to the community in a major way. The St. Pete ad agency is calling on the local community to nominate local heroes who have shown incredible bravery and support for their neighbors during the global pandemic of COVID-19. Nominating takes about three minutes, and winners of the Local Hero contest will be announced on Friday, May 1st. Twelve local heroes will be selected. All prizes will be shipped via mail and are redeemable once the businesses are permitted to reopen their doors. Watch the video.
“It’s been incredible to see how the community has come together, and our hearts go out to the essential workers – healthcare, first responders, etc. who are braving a deadly virus to serve their communities” says Lisa Williams, President of Evolve & Co. “Many of our clients are in hospitality, and although many of them are in despair, they welcomed our idea of a local hero campaign with generosity. It’s the least we can do for those on the front line.”
The public can submit nominations through April 30th here: https://bit.ly/2Vth5Fe
