Tell Us About Your 'My Town Hero'!

Do you know someone in your community who goes above and beyond? Maybe they’re always helping people, or greets everyone with a smile. Perhaps they’ve beat unthinkable odds or have accomplished something exceptional.

We want to highlight them. To have your My Town Hero featured, email the following information to ageswein@thv11.com:

  • Their name,
  • Their hometown,
  • Their contact information,
  • A photo of them, and
  • What makes them extra special

Include “My Town Hero” in the email subject line, and we’ll take care of publishing it for you. Their story might even be told on air by THV11's Denise Middleton.

THV 11 in My Town visit: Russellville

RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) – My most recent THV11 in My Town visit brought me to the lovely city of Russellville.

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

My first stop on this visit was at the Chamber of Commerce with executive vice president Stephanie Beerman and Amanda Johnson, A&P marketing assistant for the Arkansas River Valley Tri-Peak Regions.

While a COC is always centered on business and providing its members with multiple networking opportunities, Stephanie also had an extended list of new events coming up in the Russellville area that the city’s residents can enjoy.

Blood drives happening in August

Blood drives happening in August

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Red Cross)— The American Red Cross encourages all eligible blood donors to make an appointment to donate blood soon to help prevent a shortage.

During the summer months, on average, about two fewer donors give blood at each Red Cross blood drive than what is needed to meet the needs of patients. Vacations and summer activities are among the reasons regular donors may not find the time to give. But, patients don’t get a vacation from needing blood – the need is constant.

As a national network, the Red Cross has a unique responsibility to help ensure blood is available for patients whenever and wherever it is needed. By donating blood or platelets through the Red Cross, donors may be helping patients in their community or patients across the nation.

Red blood cells have a shelf life of only 42 days and platelets just five days, so they must constantly be replenished.
