Renee from Selkirk was nursing a massive migraine when we unexpectedly called her Thursday morning to tell her about her Hometown Hero nomination.  We tried to tell her we were totally cool with calling her back, but Renee wouldn't budge.  Migraine or not,  her desire to spread the word about her homeless initiative 'Street Soldiers' was way too important to pass up.  She powered through the phone call, and we're thankful she did.  What we learned from her was quite inspiring.  Renee offers comfort, food, warmth, and hugs to many people in the Capital Region who often feel neglected and cast aside.

County Waste has partnered with us to honor those in our communities who are truly making a difference.
