Delaware Andrus Award for Community Service — the Association’s most prestigious and visible state volunteer award for community service.
Dream Builders
The Create the Good  Dream Builders Video Contest is open through February 7.  This initiative, in its second year, builds on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s “I have a dream” message as well as AARP’s commitment to livable communities and service.   The contest invites individuals to submit a video about a “dream” volunteer project they are currently working on - or want to carry out - in collaboration with a community non-profit.  AARP will narrow down the entries and then post the 12 finalists for a public vote, which will be held from February 15 through 28.  The Grand Prize is a $2,500 donation to the non-profit acknowledged in the winner’s video entry to help bring their dream project to life.   The top three runner-ups will win $500 donations to support their efforts.   Please help us spread the word to individuals across your state!

 In response to the overwhelming devastation caused by Superstorm Sandy, AARP Foundation established the AARP Foundation Relief Fund and is giving nearly $1.3 million to select organizations working to support victims and communities impacted by the storm, including organizations dedicated to serving older adults. Donations were given nationally to the American Red Cross and locally to organizations in these seven states: Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Rhode Island.
