More than 500,000 Nevadans currently serve as family caregivers, providing assistance to an aging parent or other loved one with the tasks of daily living. AARP Nevada, the Asian Community Development Center (ACDC) and Rising Asian Pacific Americans Coalition for Diversity (RAPACD) are pleased to welcome Major General Antonio "Tony" Taguba - one of the nation's foremost advocates for caregivers and veterans - to Las Vegas for two special community events:
They're in the community every day - volunteering, making a difference, lending their time and talent to help those in need. They work in food banks and animal shelters, in schools and in hospitals - improving our communities and enhancing quality of life for others .

If you know an extraordinary volunteer age 50 or older, show your appreciation by nominating him or her for the 2016 AARP Nevada Andrus Award for Community Service!
