Being a hero means different things to different people. To us, it means someone who gives back in their community, and asking nothing in return. That’s why Bruce Rector is our “Everyday Hero.” He’s been working on Hurricane Sandy response projects for the past two and a half weeks. How much has he accomplished? He’s already put in an amazing 125 hours on distribution and muck-out projects. Whether he’s working as a volunteer or Team Leader, the work he’s doing is making a huge difference to victims of the storm.
Last night he was honored for all his tireless work at Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark at the Foxwoods Theater. We were so happy we got this opportunity to acknowledge Bruce since he’s worked on Sandy relief projects almost every day.
Additionally, if you see Spider-Man on Broadway now through December 31st, you can be an Everyday Hero yourself by donating a coat. Help us get closer to our goal of 200,000 coats by donating at the Foxwoods Theater or any other public collection site around the city.
