Hometown Hero, presented by Vitalant


The Chicago Wolves are proud to announce our Hometown Heroes program, presented by Vitalant, and are accepting nominations for the 2023-24 season.


Hometown Heroes are individuals who serve as the backbone of our communities by keeping them safe. Whether devoting their lives to protecting our country at home and abroad, or serving as first responders at the scenes of crimes, fires and natural disasters, these brave Americans risk their lives for us all.

If you wake up each day knowing you’re needed at work in order to save lives – or to protect and sustain our society – then you’re a Hometown Hero and the Chicago Wolves want to show our appreciation and gratitude on everyone’s behalf.

If you know someone who has gone above and beyond to serve our community, tell us their story using the form below.

The Wolves will select winners periodically based on your nominations. Each Hometown Hero will be recognized prior to select home games during the 2023-24 season and join Wayne Messmer on the ice during the National Anthem.

You can also help support our Hometown Heroes with a donation of whole blood at a Vitalant Blood Center. Visit Vitalant.org for more information.
