Members of the public are invited to vote once a day through April 30 for their favorite senior citizen volunteers, at least eight of whom are from the Erie area.
You can check out the full list of nominees at http://www.salutetoseniorservice.com/volunteer-contest/entries/, which includes the stories of all the amazing volunteers from across the country who were nominated by their peers and friends.
If you know someone who has been nominated, search for their first name and last initial (such as Sally K. or Ruth S., two of the nominees from Erie). If you want to see the entire list of nominees from Pennsylvania, simply type “Pennsylvania” in the search box.
A winner will be chosen from each state based on online voting. Each of those state winners will receive $500 for their favorite charities. A national winner will receive $5,000 to donate to his or her charity of choice.
