Central Point's Big Town Hero sandwich shop will recognize homeless advocate John Lopes at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, March 7, at the shop, 1205-C Plaza Blvd., Central Point.
Lopes is a volunteer at the Calvary Neighborhood Outreach warming station Sunday through Thursday. The center provides meals and a warm place to stay overnight. Lopes stayed there himself in the past as he struggled to get back on his feet.
Big Town Hero will unveil a poster of Lopes as part of its campaign to honor local heroes at its restaurants.
