The Salute to Senior Service program honors the contributions of people 65 and older who volunteer 15 hours a month in their communities.
Nominations for “outstanding senior volunteer” are being sought by the Home Instead Senior Care network. The deadline to submit is March 31.
State winners will be selected by popular vote at the Salute to Senior Service Web site. Online voting will take place from April 15 to April 30. From the state winners, a panel of senior care experts will pick the national Salute to Senior Service honoree.
Home Instead, Inc. will donate $500 to each of the state winners’ favorite nonprofits, and their stories will be posted on the Salute to Senior Service Wall of Fame. Another $5,000 will be donated to the national winner’s nonprofit charity of choice.
