Hometown Heroes Program

"In Order to Form a More Perfect Union; One Hero at a Time"

Celebrating dedication, courage, authenticity, passion, and you.


Heroes are ordinary people who have made an extraordinary impact. We at Philadelphia Union would like to celebrate some of those who have made a difference in our community. We are looking for those who inspire others and volunteer their time in improving the community, some who are survivors, educators, outstanding students, uniformed service men and women and those who perform selfless acts in their local communities.

The Union wants to welcome these heroes into our family, our brotherhood. The Hometown Heroes Program will further our commitment to engage and impact our region as well as provide a network to celebrate significant deeds.

The Union is happy to announce that the Hometown Heroes Program is open for nominations for the 2013 season. The public will nominate individuals in our community who deserve recognition for their honorable character and selfless actions.
