Following the attacks on September 11th, AARP began hosting an annual “Day of Service,” a day for staff and volunteers to serve their communities across the country, in a variety of ways.
What You Can Do To Help
Whether you’ve got five minutes, five hours or five months, you can give in some way to others. There are food banks and food pantries in New Jersey communities and churches which accept donations of food, cash or your time. Or you can find another volunteer position which stirs your interest. A variety of volunteer opportunities can be found by visiting CreateTheGood.org or other sites offering volunteer opportunities. If you haven’t been involved in Day of Service before, there’s no time like the present to participate.
Special Note: Please take pictures and share them on our Facebook site: www.facebook.com/AARPNewJersey to share with others your 9/11 Community Day of Service Activity!
