The Sports Bash on 97.3 ESPN wants to help recognize the people keeping the South Jersey-area safe amid the coronavirus pandemic.

If you know a doctor or health care worker, police, fire or any first responder, a transit worker, a grocery store cashier, a store owner who is helping to keep us safe, send us a text with their name, a photo and where they are from.

Give us a brief description of what they are doing to keep us safe and how they are making a difference so we can showcase it on the site and/or on air.

On behalf of The Sports Bash and 97.3 ESPN and our entire community: Thank you for all that you do!
