Nominations Open for AARP Minnesota's Andrus Award for Community Service

Posted on 05/18/20

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. 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. Only one Minnesota volunteer (or couple performing service together) can receive the Award.

To celebrate these dedicated volunteers, we are pleased to announce nominations are now being accepted for the 2020 AARP Minnesota Andrus Award for Community Service! Do you know someone who should be nominated for this award? Review requirements for eligibility and submit your nomination online. Nominations for the Andrus Award for Community Service will be accepted through August 15.
