AARP Ohio is now accepting nominations for its 2022 Andrus Award for Community Service, which honors an Ohioan who is sharing their experience, talent and skills to enrich the lives of their community members.
The Andrus Award for Community Service is AARP’s most prestigious and visible award for those who give their experience, skill, talent and time to the people around them. Only one individual (or a duo performing service together) from Ohio can receive the award. Because of their dedication, AARP Ohio is providing the recipient with $1,500 to be donated to an eligible nonprofit of their choice.
"AARP Ohio is excited to shine a light on a volunteer who is using what they’ve learned in life to make a difference in the lives of others,” said State Director Holly Holtzen.
The Andrus Award is named after AARP’s founder, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus, who inspired, and continues to inspire communities across the United States. AARP Ohio fully acknowledges that its mission simply cannot be carried out without the help of volunteers. The passion and energy of AARP Ohio’s volunteers, and others who work in a similar spirit, are the forces bringing positive change to the state.
As we return to a new normal of hybrid of in-person events, this year also marks another year of leadership within our state. Many Ohioans have successfully stepped up to contribute to, grow and lead others for a common cause in these uncertain times. With many more successful community-focused initiatives this year, AARP Ohio needs your help to nominate the winner of the 2022 Andrus Award.
