Do you know an outstanding senior volunteer?
Home Instead, Inc., franchiser of the Home Instead Senior Care network, which includes an office in Grayslake, is seeking nominations for its Salute to Senior Service program, which honors the contributions of adults 65 and older who give at least 15 hours a month of volunteer service to their favorite causes.
"We all know seniors who do so much for our community," said Cindy Madson, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care office in Grayslake.
"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."
Nominations will be accepted between Feb. 1 and March 31.
State winners then will be selected by popular vote at www.SalutetoSeniorService.com. On-line voting will take place April 15 to April 30. From those state winners, a panel of senior care experts will pick the national Salute to Senior Service honoree.
A $500 prize will be donated to each state winner’s cause; with $5,000 donated to the national winner’s cause.
To nominate someone, visit www.SalutetoSeniorService.com or mail the nomination form to Salute to Senior Service, P.O. Box 285, Bellevue, NE 68005
