During Black History Month, AARP is celebrating the stories of six Californians defining what it means to take hold of all of life’s possibilities at any age.
We continue our series this week by featuring David Crippens, a nonprofit consultant passionate about bringing people together through community service.
He's been an AARP member for twenty years. Why? Because he's dedicated to living a life of purpose and making the world a better place, much like our founder, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus. He's committed to continuing a family legacy of giving back.
We're honored to have him as a member and proud to offer opportunities for individuals and organizations to volunteer, whether they have five minutes, five hours, or five days. Like David, we're also committed to intergenerational innovation and experiences. We offer resources for grandparents like David, whether they're enjoying time together during the weekend or raising grandchildren themselves.
David says he's not planning to stop working anytime soon. We say, we're fortunate to have him continuing in community service.
