Welcome to the Power of 1 Project, a celebration of hometown heroes. Brought to you by AmericanTowns.com and Reader’s Digest. Each month, Reader’s Digest features brave, compassionate, and committed hometown heroes who are proving the Power of One. They’ve given their time, invested their talent, taken risks, and taken action, and they’ve each made a difference worth celebrating. Share a story to commend a hero in your community. Inspire others across the country to get involved.
Check out our gallery of inspirational people and give a round of applause to the hometown heroes featured in Reader’s Digest magazine.
