Celebrating the Heroes in Your Community

Honda Heroes are everyday people who perform selfless acts to benefit others while using power equipment products (lawn mowers, generators, tillers, trimmers, or snow blowers).

A Honda Hero could be your neighbor, who mows the lawns for breast cancer patients. Or a colleague, who took a truckload of generators and supplies down to power communities devastated by a hurricane. Or perhaps an aunt, who uses a tiller to prepare a community garden. Honda Heroes go above and beyond doing good things to make the community better. They may be well-known in the neighborhood, or helpful with little fanfare or expectation of recognition. Either way, you know who they are.

This year, Honda encourages you to tell us about these people by nominating them to be a Honda Hero. By taking the time to share their story with us, you could help them be even more helpful by providing them with either a Honda generator or Honda lawn mower, plus $1000 to help further their efforts in the community.

Meet Honda Hero Mike P.

Congratulations to Michael P. from Wilbraham, MA, our first ever Honda Hero. During the day, Mike is a teacher’s aide for a group of special kids at Minnechaug Regional High School in Wilbraham, Massachusetts. While many at the school would consider him a hero, he often comes to the rescue in his neighborhood as well, selflessly providing assistance to those in need of help mowing lawns in his community.

Congratulations, Mike! Thank you for being a Honda Hero in your community!
