Elations rewards baby boomer volunteer force
CINCINNATI Elations recently announced the launch of the “Boomers Building a Better America” initiative, a program designed to reward baby boomers who are an active part of the volunteer force in the United States.
Former Olympic gymnasts and community activists, Nadia Comaneci and her husband Bart Conner, are kicking-off this program and will help choose the top projects pitched by boomers who will be awarded cash grants coupled with the expert advice, resources and tools to help them get their projects done.
Spurred in part by the tight job market and down economy, baby boomers with altruistic goals are more and more volunteering in place of donating, Elations stated.
“Elations launched this campaign to help fuel this growing population of active volunteers, motivate more people to get involved and to recognize their efforts and the positive impact they are having on communities around the country,” said Michael Burton, Elations director of marketing.
