The human contribution is the essential ingredient. It is only in the giving of oneself to others that we truly live. - Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus.
Here at AARP
Indiana we understand that volunteers are the foundation for the work we do. Our efforts would not be possible without the selfless acts our volunteers conduct day in and day out to make the community a better place. We cannot thank them enough for their time and efforts. That is why it is time for them to be recognized for their accomplishments.
Do you know an inspiring volunteer that exemplifies what it means to be a strong community advocate? If the answer is yes, then be sure to nominate them for AARP’s Andrus Award for Community Service.
The Andrus Award is the most prestigious volunteer tribute that shines the spotlight on outstanding individuals who are sharing their experience, talents and skills to enrich the lives of others. Thank you to all of the volunteers out there! What you do truly matters. All volunteers deserve our respect and admiration so be sure not to miss this opportunity to celebrate and recognize their accomplishments that have made an impact here in the Hoosier State.
