For the past eight years, the Richmond Times-Dispatch has been marking the great community efforts of central Virginians with our annual series called Making a Difference.

Now, it’s time to nominate the next year’s class of difference-makers.

Do you know an unsung hero? A friend or neighbor whose good deeds benefit the central Virginia region? Or a colleague doing extraordinary work?

Send your nominations by email to Executive Editor Paige Mudd at by Friday, Nov. 29.

Entries should include a brief description of the good deeds as well as contact information for you and your nominee. Please label entries with the phrase “Making a Difference” in the subject line of your email.
