Hometown Heroes Program Takes Off

More than 900 York County veterans have received identification cards as part of the Hometown Heroes discount program, York County Recorder of Deeds Randi Reisinger announced today.

The “Hometown Heroes” program allows York County veterans to receive a photo ID they can use to receive discounts on purchases and services from participating business owners. It is free to all honorably charged veterans.

As of Friday morning, Reisinger said 910 local veterans had picked up program ID cards. More than 140 businesses are participating.

“I’m incredibly excited about the program’s success, and encourage more veterans and businesses to participate,” Reisinger said. “This is a small way our community can give back to the people who have sacrificed so much for us.”

Reisinger said participating businesses will soon be receiving Hometown Heroes posters to hang in prominent locations within their establishments. The posters will ensure veterans, and the community at large, know the business participates in the program.

Veterans interested in signing up for the program must file their original discharge (DD-214) papers with the Recorder of Deeds’ office. It is located on the first floor of the York County Administrative Center, 28 E. Market St. in York City. IDs are issued weekdays between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Businesses interested in participating in the program should call 771-9295. They may opt out at any time.
Additional information on the program, including a list of participating businesses, is available on the Recorder of Deeds’ website here.
