Honoring YOUR Hometown Heroes at our 2020 Hometown Heroes Event

A BIG thank you to community members who have submitted names of their community heroes to honor during our virtual Hometown Heroes event next Thursday, October 1st, from 5:00 to 6:00PM. Here are some of the names submitted so far of individuals, businesses and organizations in Mountain View and Los Altos who have helped the community during these times of great need.

Spotlight on Tom Smith, 2020 Hometown Hero

We are delighted to honor Tom Smith as one of our 2020 Hometown Heroes. Tom embodies the best of community volunteerism and leadership. Over the years, Tom has been involved with the Los Altos Chamber of Commerce, serving as president in 1998-99, and the Los Altos United Methodist Church (LAUMC) where he and his wife Karen are active members. In 2016, Karen and Tom received the Chamber’s coveted Walter & Marie Singer award given “to those exhibiting community service, generosity and commitment to business.”

Spotlight on 2019 Hometown Hero Mary Prochnow

Mary is delighted to be selected as one of our three 2019 Hometown Heroes. “There are so many people who form the fabric of our community and make a difference in our daily lives who are struggling to get by. While we are beginning to address the issues of affordable housing, the reality is that progress is slow-going and a little bit at a time. I am so grateful for the work CSA does to support our neighbors in need.”
