In order to flatten the curve, essential workers, heroes and medical professionals stayed at work to see to the needs of our community. From medical professionals in clinics and hospitals, to grocery store workers, to neighbors that checked in on each other, this is what makes a true hometown hero!
On Tuesday, December 1, 2020, the Pleasant Hill Chamber of Commerce held their, Hometown Heroes Recognition Award Event, and our very own, Alex Khodadad won their Good Neighbor award!
This award is a huge honor for Alex, and means the world to him. He has all of you to thank for helping him rally around our local businesses throughout the pandemic.
The Good Neighbor Award was presented by the Chamber’s Chairperson, Angela Warren & Executive Director, Jeremy Carlson.
Alex was nominated for the Good Neighbor award by Derek Wurst at the very beginning of shelter in place. Alex responded to the business closures in a unique way. He created a social media Facebook page that promoted all the restaurants open for take-out to help drive businesses back into the community. Since the beginning of March, membership has grown to over 7,000 members! Alex is constantly inspired by our members, and is so grateful. He teaches his son to always come from a place of contribution because that is the way his own mother raised him.
The holiday season is the perfect time to honor and recognize individuals, businesses, and organizations that have shown the human spirit can shine in challenging times and thank them! We encourage you to be thankful and stay positive as we move forward into 2021 and beyond!
