PA Hunger Rountable Report 2015
Today, thousands of older adults are experiencing hunger and there are even more at risk due to the recession. In Philadelphia over 330,000 people are at risk for hunger, and nationally nearly 9 million older adults face food insecurity.
Older adults are an important part of the Philadelphia County community. Influenza (commonly known as “the flu”) is a contagious disease that can be severe and life-threatening, especially for adults 65 years of age and older. AARP community partner Center in the Park will be sponsoring a flu prevention fair.
Technology has changed the way we do nearly everything. Whether you want to communicate with someone, order food, or play a game, there’s an app for that. Last semester, with a grant from McLean Contributionship, Philadelphia AARP Experience Corps volunteers used iPads to deliver support to first and second grade students struggling with reading. What tutors and children alike learned was that using tech for learning can be a lot of fun.
AARP is currently accepting applications for a communication and community outreach intern in our Philadelphia office for the 2014-2015 fall/spring semester. If you are or know anyone interested in the position, email Angela Foreshaw your resume at Applicants must be able to commit to 20 hours per week for this paid position.
