Posted on 05/04/22 by Steve Hahn


WILMINGTON -- Nominate your hometown hero for the 2022 AARP Coastal Community Inspiration Awards. The Inspiration Awards are presented each year by AARP North Carolina to Coastal area community organizations or individuals who are doing the most to help residents ages 50 and over.

AARP Associate State Director for Coastal NC Rosalie Calarco said, "In June, we will be honoring people and organizations up and down the coast that have been working to improve our home towns and rural communities, fight fraud, help veterans or support family caregivers. So many of our friends and neighbors are making a huge impact when it comes to helping us get the most out of life as we age."

The 2022 awards will recognize the contributions of community-minded recipients who demonstrate public service and social impact. You are invited to nominate one or more organizations and/or individuals. Self-nominations are also being accepted.

The deadline to submit nominations: Midnight - May 13th.
