Search is on for New Hampshire’s outstanding senior volunteer
Every day, New Hampshire senior volunteers generously give their time and service to help others. Here’s your chance to give back by nominating a deserving older adult in your community for his or her outstanding service through the Salute to Senior Service program.
Salute to Senior Service is sponsored by Home Instead, franchisor of the Home Instead Senior Care network. It recognizes the contributions of adults 65 and older who give at least 15 hours a month of volunteer service to their favorite causes.
“Seniors have so much to give and make a positive impact on our communities daily,” said Lisa Ganem, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care offices serving southern New Hampshire and the Seacoast. “Senior volunteerism not only benefits others, but also helps seniors stay active and socially engaged in their communities – important elements of healthy aging.”
Nominations and voting are open until Saturday, March 1, at salutetoseniorservice.com. Nomination forms also can be downloaded and mailed to Salute to Senior Service, P.O. Box 285, Bellevue, NE 68005.
State winners will be determined by popular vote. A panel of senior care experts will then select a national winner from among the state honorees. Home Instead will donate $500 to each of the state winners’ designated 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 nonprofit charity.
