AARP Delaware has remained hard at work on behalf of older adults in the First State, advocating for family caregivers, fighting fraud and holding events like virtual movie nights.
AARP is now accepting nominations for its 2019 Delaware Andrus Award for Community Service, which honors 50+ Delawareans who are sharing their experience, talent, and skills to enrich the lives of their community members.
February is Black History Month, and to celebrate, AARP Delaware and AARP Pennsylvania are teaming up with the Colored Conventions Project (CCP) to commemorate Douglass Day, the birthday of Frederick Douglass. The day of events begins with a celebration at University of Delaware, with a special reception later in the afternoon at the African American History Museum in Philadelphia.
AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is looking to expand its team of volunteers for the upcoming tax season. Tax-Aide, now in its 51 st year, offers free in-person preparation and assistance to anyone, especially those 50 and older, who can’t afford a tax preparation service. Volunteers make a difference in their communities by assisting many older, lower-income taxpayers, and their families, who might otherwise miss out on the tax credits and deductions they’ve earned.
I recently had the opportunity to join the dynamic staff and volunteers at AARP for their annual Lobby Day at Legislative Hall in Dover. It was my first time in my new role as AARP Delaware State President. The person in this top volunteer role represents AARP to a variety of governmental, corporate and community partners in the state and helps drive the mission of AARP – to make life better for those over age 50, and their families.
AARP is making a difference in your community, and you can be part of it. At AARP, we fight fraud, help drivers stay safe, provide free tax help, and celebrate family caregivers. Join us for refreshments and hors d’oeuvres, and learn more about expanding your possibilities in life at any age.
