The Salute to Senior Service program, sponsored by Home Instead, Inc., honors the contributions of adults 65 or older who give at least 15 hours a month of volunteer service to their favorite causes.
Nominations for outstanding senior volunteers will be accepted through March 13. State winners will be selected by popular vote at SalutetoSeniorService.com.
Online voting will take place from April 15 to 30. From those state winners, a panel of senior experts will pick the national Salute to Senior Service honoree.
Home Instead, Inc. will donate $500 to each of the state winners’ 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 non-profit charity of choice.
“We all know seniors who do so much for our community,” said Arlette Preston, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care office, which serves many counties including Douglas. “Their contributions often make a difference not only to the organizations they serve, but in changing how the public views growing older.”
Senior care professionals and those who work at hospitals, senior care facilities and other places where seniors volunteer are encouraged to nominate older adults. Older adults also may self-nominate.
Seniors age 65 or older who volunteer at least 15 hours a month may be nominated.

Completed nomination forms can also be mailed to Salute to Senior Service, PO Box 285, Bellevue, NE 68005.
