Salute to Senior Volunteers

Luzerne County – Volunteering is paying off big time for a Luzerne County woman.  Audrey Milford, 71, is the Home Instead Senior Care “Salute to Senior Service” award winner for the state of Pennsylvania.

The honor is given to senior citizens who give back to their communities.  She was nominated by a co-worker at Celtic Healthcare Hospice, where Milford volunteers 40 hours a week.

The Senior Volunteer Winner says “I was just overwhelmed at the thought, that somebody thought enough of what I do to nominate me.”  The honor earned her $500 for the charity of her choice.  She chose her church, First Church of Christ in Wilkes-Barre.

From here the 50 state finalists are narrowed down.  A panel of judges will choose a national winner to receive $5,000 for a charity of their choice.
