Nominate your Pandemic Heroes

Usually, this is the time of year, we’d be asking you to vote in more than 200 categories for SN&R’s Best of Sacramento. But, like nearly everything else in the world we’re doing things differently during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is not a time to encourage competition. Instead, we’d love to hear from you about the people around you who are making this trying time a little less difficult. So this year, instead of inviting you to vote for Sacramento News & Review’s Best Ofs, we’re asking you to help us recognize some of Sacramento’s Pandemic Heroes.

Who is a hero that you want to recognize?

A Pandemic Hero is a business, nonprofit or person in the Sacramento area that’s made a difference in your life during these harrowing times. To simplify it, we’ve narrowed it down to four categories: Food & Drink, Retail & Services, Arts & Entertainment, and People. We’d love for you to share why you’ve nominated them. It should only take about a paragraph.

The best submissions will be highlighted in our September 3 print issue. Thank you for helping us thank the city’s Pandemic Heroes!
