Volunteers nominations wanted

LIHUE — AARP Hawaii is seeking nominations for the 2016 Andrus Award for Community Service, which honors volunteers who share their experience, talent, and skills in the community.

Nominations are open for any Hawaii volunteer age 50 or older.

“Each day in Hawaii hundreds of volunteers, from all walks of life, have a transformative impact in communities across the state,” said AARP State President Gerry Silva. “It’s important to acknowledge that impact and let volunteers know that their service is recognized and valued.”

The screening of nominees considers a range of criteria, including positive impact on the lives of individuals age 50 or older and improvement of the community in which the work was done.

The application deadline is June 30.
