MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — We know there are a lot of people who spend their golden years helping others.
And now the search is on for Minnesota’s most outstanding senior volunteer. Vitaly Salo is the owner of the Home Instead Senior Care office, and he joined the WCCO-TV morning show to talk about this year’s competition.
It’s the second year of the competition, and Salo said a lot of seniors volunteer their time in ways that many people never see. Many seniors volunteer time in their local towns, and this competition is a way to recognize someone for their efforts.
Nominations for outstanding senior volunteers will be accepted through the end of March. The winner in each state will receive $500 and one national winner will receive $5,000 to donate to the winners’ charities of choice.
