Senior volunteer nominations sought

Salute to Senior Service program is seeking nominees of deserving older adults who offer service in their communities.

Sponsored by Home Instead Inc., Salute to Senior Service recognizes the contributions of adults age 65 and older who give at least 15 hours a month of volunteer service.

Members of the community are asked to nominate and vote for these everyday heroes until March 1 at State winners will be determined by popular vote. A panel of senior care experts will then select a national Salute to Senior Service winner from among the state honorees.

Home Instead Inc. will donate $500 to each of the state winners’ designated and approved nonprofit organizations, and their personal stories will be shared online on the Salute to Senior Service Wall of Fame. In addition, $5,000 will be donated to the national winner’s designated and approved nonprofit charity.
