Every day AARP volunteers impact the lives of others. Whether fighting to lower the high cost of prescription drugs, educating people on the latest frauds and scams, or connecting people to meaningful and fun experiences where they live; volunteers are vital to the work that we do throughout the state.

For four years, 1,000+ nominations, and 200 honorees, AARP Minnesota and Pollen’s 50 Over 50 has always been about celebrating hope, resilience, and the contributions of those over the age of 50 who work tirelessly to make Minnesota better for all of us. This year is no different. In fact, their inspiring stories are exactly what we need right now in the face of a global health and economic crisis.
