We’re looking for community heroes for the holidays

Do you know someone who works tirelessly but quietly to help others, with or without pay, but hasn’t been widely recognized for making a difference in the community?

The La Jolla Light wants to find such people for Community Heroes, a series of stories for our editions around the holidays.

These stories won’t be about people who are often in the news — just regular folks making a difference in the lives of others.

If you know such a person, email Editor Rob Vardon at

Please limit suggestions to people who live or work in La Jolla or otherwise have strong ties to the community. ◆
