The good folks at Kangaroo Express are offering up free Roo Cups again.

But instead of the cups going to Centsible Saver readers, they are seeking your help in treating a local group of heroes.

It could be a particular department of teachers or nurses, or a unit of firefighters or police officers -- any group you think goes above and beyond.

Email me your nominations at Please put “Roo Cup Hero” in the subject line and include a contact name and phone number for the group you are nominating. Also include a line or two about what makes the group heroic.

You have until noon Tuesday, June 24, to enter. One entry per person. I'll choose a winner randomly and announce it on the blog soon after.

Each member of the winning group will receive a Roo Cup, which can be refilled with 25-cent soft drinks and slushies through Sept. 30.
