A Hero in Our Local Community

Home Clean Heroes Contest Winner Valarie smiling at work

While cleaning homes is our focus so that families can spend time doing the things that matter most, we also care deeply about giving back to our community. There have been so many amazing people stepping up over the past few months, that we wanted to focus on a Hero that stands out for doing good during this difficult time.

Each year, Home Clean Heroes holds a Who’s Your Hero contest, in which people that live in the local community can nominate someone admirable in their life who deserves a free house cleaning. Home Clean Heroes then selects a winner and provides the gift of a free house cleaning, not only for the contest winner but also for the person who nominated them. This year was especially meaningful to us, as we asked for nominations specifically focused on essential workers. Essential workers have shown what it means to be a hero during COVID-19. They have put others before their own safety and health and sacrificed so much for the greater good. Even when it can mean spending days or months away from loved ones, they have continued to do meaningful work. It was especially difficult to select a winner this year, since every person nominated is positively impacting the local community, and more than deserving of recognition.

Congratulations to our Who’s Your Hero Contest Winner

Valarie smiling with her daughterWe are thrilled to announce that the winner of our 2020 Who’s Your Hero Contest is Valarie! Valarie is a respiratory therapist at Sentara hospital in Norfolk, where she provides care for patients who have trouble breathing. She has been directly working with COVID-19 patients to bring them the care they need. Valarie was nominated by her sister Stephanie. Stephanie said, “Valarie goes to work every day as a respiratory therapist and helps COVID-19 patients. She hasn’t hugged her 7 and 3-year-old in over a month as they are now staying long term with her parents.” Valarie and Stephanie aren’t just sisters, but best friends who talk to each other on a daily basis. When reading through all of the wonderful Hero nominations we received, we could really feel the empathy that Stephanie had for her sister and all she’s sacrificed to help others. This made Valarie stand out as the clear winner of the Who’s Your Hero contest.
