“我們很榮幸能夠再次向這些全心全意,致力服務、協助和照顧長者的非盈利機構職員和義工致敬,” AARP樂齡會多元文化領導部門亞太裔受眾副總裁郭為婉(Daphne Kwok)說: “請提名任何您認識的傑出人士,以表揚及感謝這些無名英雄,長期默默在您的社區之中為改善亞太裔長者生活而努力不懈。”

由AARP職員組成的遴選委員會將從芸芸被提名人士中選取十位優秀者,然後於七月開始在臉書網頁facebook.com/aarpaapi中公佈和接受公眾投票。得獎者將包括一位職員及一位義工,兩人除了可以各自獲得1,000現金獎,他們所屬的組織也將分別獲得$1,000元。

民眾可以前往AARP樂齡會的臉書專頁www.facebook.com/AARPAAPI了解詳情以及進行提名。只要是在服務50歲以上亞太裔民眾的非盈利機構擔任非高管的職員或義工即符合提名資格,不論年齡和族裔,而且活動開放公眾參與及不設參加費用。


During Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, AARP is celebrating unsung heroes. AARP proudly announces a call for nominations for its 3rd annual Asian American and Pacific Islander Hero Awards to acknowledge the extraordinary staff and volunteers of nonprofit organizations that serve AAPIs age 50-plus. AARP is seeking nominees who are important contributors to their organizations, who make a difference and whose stories inspire others to do more in their communities. Nominations may be submitted now until May 31.

“We are proud to once again put the spotlight on the nonprofit staff and volunteers who go above and beyond to serve, assist, and care for seniors,” said Daphne Kwok, AARP Vice President of Multicultural Leadership, Asian American and Pacific Islander Audience Strategy. “To acknowledge and thank the unsung heroes who work to improve the lives of older AAPIs in your community, nominate someone you know who is making a difference.”

Ten finalists—five staff members and five volunteers—will be chosen from the submitted nominees by a committee comprised of AARP staff. The finalists will be featured at facebook.com/aarpaapi for the public to cast their vote. One staff member and one volunteer will be awarded $1,000, and their respective organizations will also each receive a $1,000 cash prize. Each winner and their organization will also be featured in a cinematic 3- to 5-minute short film to be promoted by AARP.

For more information and to submit a nomination, visit aarp.org/aapi. Eligible nominees include any non-senior management employee or volunteer of a non-profit organization that serves Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders age 50-plus. Nominees can be any age and ethnicity. The awards are open to the public and there is no fee to submit a nomination.
