According to the latest research senior volunteering is at a 10-year high with more than 20 million aging adult volunteers contributing more than 3 billion hours of service with an estimated economic benefit totaling more than $67 billion. Sixty-two percent of Americans ages 68 and older volunteered during the past year.
Now Gloucester County residents can recognize and thank the senior volunteers in their lives by nominating one deserving individual for a Salute to Senior Service award.
Sponsored by Home Instead Senior Care, the Salute to Senior Service national award program recognizes volunteers ages 65 and older for their outstanding service to others each year. Nominations are accepted now through March 1, both through the website and via mail. State and national winners will be announced in April.
