AARP is now accepting nominations for its 2020 Texas Andrus Award for Community Service, which honors age-50+ Texans who are sharing their experience, talent, and skills to enrich the lives of their community members.
“AARP Texas has long valued volunteerism and the important contributions volunteers make to their communities, neighbors, and the programs they serve,” said AARP Texas Director Tina Tran.
Nominations will be evaluated by AARP Texas based on how the volunteer’s work has improved the community, supported AARP’s vision and mission, and inspired other volunteers. The award recipient will be announced in early fall.
