Nominations sought for senior volunteers
The search is on for Pennsylvania’s outstanding senior volunteer.
The Salute to Senior Service program, sponsored by Home Instead Inc., the franchisor of the Home Instead Senior Care network, honors the contributions of adults 65 and older who give at least 15 hours a month of volunteer service to their favorite causes.
Nominations for outstanding senior volunteers will be accepted between Feb. 1 and March 31. State winners will be selected by popular vote at www.SalutetoSeniorService.com. Online voting will be held April 15-30.
A panel of senior-care experts will select the national Salute to Senior Service winner. Home Instead Inc. will donate $500 to each of the state winner’s favorite nonprofit organizations, and their stories will be posted on the Salute to Senior Service Wall of Fame. In addition, $5,000 will be donated to the national winner’s nonprofit charity of choice.
“We all know seniors who do so much for our community,” said Lucy Novelly, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care office serving Southwestern Allegheny and Washington counties. “These silent heroes give selflessly, expecting nothing in return. And yet, their contributions often make a difference not only to the organizations they serve, but in changing how the public views growing older.”
