AARP Minnesota 2021 Andrus Award Recipient: Mohammed Mehdi

The annual AARP Andrus Award for Community Service recognizes individuals who are sharing their experience, talent, and skills to enrich their communities. AARP’s commitment to volunteer service can be traced back to our founder, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus, whose motto “to serve, not to be served” has shaped our community service efforts at the national, state, and local levels.

Each year, we honor the legacy of Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus with the AARP Minnesota Andrus Award for Community Service. The annual Andrus Award for Community Service is AARP’s most prestigious and visible volunteer award. It recognizes individuals who are sharing their experience, talent and skills to enrich their communities in ways that are consistent with AARP’s purpose, vision, and commitment to volunteer service, and that inspire others to volunteer. This year, Mohammed Mehdi was the AARP Minnesota 2021 Andrus Award Recipient!

Mohammed dedicates his time and effort to his community selflessly by fixing furnaces, air conditioners, and even sending medical supplies to other communities in need. Mohammed helped opened up a free clinic in his community which has instilled volunteerism in others who now volunteer their time there. He by leads by example by dedicating his life to helping one and all.

AARP Minnesota is proud to honor Mohammed and the volunteer work he has put forward. Watch below to learn more about Mohammed.
