KREM 2’s "Sterling Bank Hero of the Month" lets us recognize young people for acts of kindness.
Our October hero turned her own important milestone into a way to help others.
Kyrah Peterson and her family rescued their puppy, Bella, from a shelter after someone dumped her in a box along I-90.
In lieu of gifts for herself for her sweet 16, Kyrah asked friends and family for donations to go to dogs and cats still in need of homes.
She collected money, food and treats for Spokanimal.
If you know a young person between the ages of 13 and 24 doing good deeds in your community nominate them as our Hero of the Month by clicking here.
