AARP Massachusetts Shines a light on Bay Staters Who Give Back
As the nation’s largest nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to empowering Americans 50 and older, AARP works to strengthen communities and advocate for what matters most to families. As such, AARP is excited to shine a light on 50+ Massachusetts residents who are using what they’ve learned in life to make a difference in their community.
We are now accepting nominations for our 2022 AARP Massachusetts Andrus Award for Community Service. Named after our founder: Ethel Percy Andrus, the AARP Andrus Award for Community Service honors Bay Staters that are over 50 years old who are sharing their experience, talent, and skills to enrich the lives of their community members. In addition, the award recipient will be granted $2,500 to donate to a non-profit of their choosing. Please note, the person does NOT have to be an AARP member or volunteer, but they do have to live in Massachusetts.
Nominations will be evaluated by the AARP Massachusetts State Office based on how the volunteer’s work has improved the community, reflected AARP’s vision and mission, and inspired other volunteers. Nominate someone here.
AARP Massachusetts Andrus Award for Community Service nominees must meet the following eligibility requirements:
The application deadline is July 15, 2022 and the award recipient will be announced in early fall and then honored at our 2022 Annual Andrus Awards Ceremony. The AARP Andrus Award Ceremony is an annual awards program developed to honor individuals whose service is a unique and valuable contribution to society.
