AARP AARP States Illinois Community

AARP Illinois Day Of Service

For the past 12 years AARP has diverted from its routine business to conduct a service project in various communities across the United States as a way of demonstrating their support and concern for Americans touched by the tragedy that occurred on September 11, 2001. What began as an immediate reaction to a horrific event in one community has become an annual tribute to all American communities. Nationally, AARP now designates September 11 th as its NATIONAL DAY OF SERVICE and on this day AARP volunteers and staff across the country perform some type of service for the benefit of their community members. In the past, AARP Virgin Islands has conducted events which have focused on organizing food drives, serving food to the homeless, or collecting essential supplies for a local school
