The search is on for Ohio’s Outstanding Senior Volunteer

Every day, Ohio senior volunteers give their time and service to help others. The Salute to Senior Service® program is a chance to give back by nominating a deserving older adult in the community for his or her outstanding service.  

Sponsored by Home Instead Inc., the franchisor of the Home Instead Senior Care® network, Salute to Senior Service recognizes the invaluable contributions of adults age 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 Enedelia Marez, general manager of the Home Instead Senior Care office serving Erie, Huron and Ottawa counties. “Senior volunteerism not only benefits others, but also helps seniors stay active and socially engaged in their communities, important elements of healthy aging.”

Members of the community are asked to nominate and vote for these everyday heroes between Jan. 15 and March 1 at SalutetoSeniorService.com. 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.

To complete and submit an online nomination form for a senior age 65 or older who volunteers at least 15 hours a month, and to view the contest’s official rules, visit SalutetoSeniorService.com. Completed nomination forms can alternatively be mailed to Salute to Senior Service, P.O. Box 285, Bellevue, NE 68005.
