KNUJ’s Hometown Heroes for the month of September are Richard and Nancy Helgeson of St. Peter. Both Helgesons volunteer much of their time to the St. Peter Area Food Shelf, with Nancy serving as director and Richard a co-leader and volunteer driver for the food rescue program. He also provides assistance to hospice patients and serves with the St. Peter Kiwanis Club, and she volunteers with the St. Peter School District as well as a group that donates quilts to the homebound. Richard and Nancy Helgeson have contributed to the St. Peter community in numerous other ways over the years as well, and were both named the Nicollet County Outstanding Senior Citizens this year also. The Hometown Hero recognition is sponsored by KNUJ AM and FM and select Thrivent Financial agents. To nominate YOUR Hometown Hero stop by our studios in New Ulm or Sleepy Eye, or click HERE.
