More than one in four adults ages 55 and older volunteers each year, according to the Corporation for National and Community Service. This statistic may surprise those who associate older age with a less active lifestyle. But in reality, millions of seniors selflessly give their time, skills and knowledge to benefit their communities, including through organizations like your nonprofit.
Now there’s a meaningful way to thank and honor Americans 65 and older who have positively impacted your organization: By entering him or her in the Salute to Senior Service® contest.
Salute to Senior Service is an annual program sponsored by Home Instead, Inc., franchisor of the Home Instead Senior Care® franchise network, that recognizes the many ways seniors positively impact communities through their volunteer work. Now through March 31, you can nominate someone who has made a difference and inspired others by dedicating their time and talents to your nonprofit and the people you serve.
Salute to Senior Service nominees not only receive public recognition and appreciation for their dedicated community service, but are also eligible for a chance to win up to $5,500 that will be donated to their favorite volunteer organization.
