AARP Eye Center
Thank You, AARP Volunteers
AARP Alabama volunteers lend a hand in communities across the state to make life better. They read and tutor children, assess the safety of walking routes to school, feed the poor, plant gardens, assist people with income tax filing, and make sure drivers are knowledgeable about rules of the road.
They also advocate on the state and federal level for the 50+. They lead efforts, mobilize volunteers, and work to change laws.
AARP Alabama wants to take the opportunity during National Volunteer Week, April 21-27, to send a special “Thank You” to all of our members who make a difference in the lives of so many. The world is a better place because you’re in it.
We also want to support and thank our members who are leading new projects or expanding service projects in their communities:
