 OUR        MISSION

To stand up on behalf of the children. These young people remind us that our faith beckons us to aid the weakest of our community and to make their fight, our fight.

In 1998 a police sergeant, now retired Donnie Dixon recognized a need and was compelled to help several children who suffered from terminal illnesses or debilitating injuries as a result of tragic accidents. Not realizing the magnitude of the journey he was about to embark upon, he organized a golf tournament raising money to assist these families. Since then Hometown Heroes has become a 501(C)3 charity. Our focus has changed to supporting families that have kids that have cancer.

Community and business support was solicited along with coordination of other events that helped provide support to these families to cope with the financial burden and horrifying news of their children’s fate.  

 

If asked, all involved with our mission will tell you...

“It’s all about the kids and Hometown Heroes would not be what it is today without every individual or business that volunteers, contributes and supports our mission."
