AARP DC Accepting Nominations for Community Service Award

Nominations are being accepted through July 10 for AARP DC’s 2017 Andrus Award for Community Service.

The award honors District residents over the age of 50 who are sharing their experience, talent and skills to enrich the lives of their community members.

“AARP DC is excited to shine a light on volunteers in D.C. age 50 and older, who are using what they’ve learned in life to make a difference in the lives around them,” said Joseph Williams Sr., AARP DC State president.

AARP DC Andrus Award for Community Service nominees must meet the following eligibility requirements:

• Nominee must be 50 years or older.
• The achievements, accomplishments, or service on which the nomination is based must have been performed on a volunteer basis, without pay.
• The achievements, accomplishments, or service on which the nomination is based must reflect AARP’s vision and mission.
• Couples or partners who perform service together are also eligible; however, teams are not eligible.
• Nominees must be living.

Nominations will be evaluated by AARP DC based on how the volunteer’s work has improved the community, supported AARP’s vision and mission, and inspired other volunteers. The award recipient will be announced in early fall.

Beginning this year, AARP DC will donate $1,000 on behalf of the 2017 AARP DC Andrus Award winner to an eligible nonprofit organization of the winner’s choosing.

Online nomination forms are available at aarp.org/AndrusAward or by calling AARP DC at 202-434-7700.
