Nominate a holiday hometown hero

Driftwood Mall's Catch the Spirit campaign includes an opportunity to nominate a holiday hometown hero.

Just in time for the holiday season, Driftwood Mall in courtenay has announced its 2013 Catch the Spirit campaign, which includes an opportunity to nominate a holiday hometown hero.

The Holiday Hero portion of the campaign will allow people to nominate a notable person in their community — someone they feel is committed to making a difference.

Whether a helpful neighbour, school teacher, firefighter, caregiver or sports coach, Catch the Spirit’s Hero Committee wants to hear from citizens about the extraordinary members of their community.

“We’re excited to give a $500 shopping spree for the best act of kindness!” says Domenic Imbesi, parent company Bentall-Kennedy’s regional director of marketing retail services.

For more information and a direct link to the 2013 Catch the Spirit campaign, visit www.driftwoodmall.ca.
