Winter Relief Fund to Aid Seniors in Northeast and Midwest

Winter relief fund

Another cold snap is on its way and many of our friends and neighbors in New Hampshire may be suffering to stay warm. 

That is why the AARP Foundation has established a relief fund to support older adults suffering from the severe cold weather that continues to grip much of the nation. 

AARP and AARP Foundation will match dollar-for-dollar contributions up to $250,000, which could mean up to $500,000 in aid. The matching program will focus on states across the Northeast and Midwest and will work with AARP State offices to direct funds to organizations providing relief to those most in need.   

Seniors with limited incomes could face difficult choices this winter season and for those already living on the brink of survival, increased heating costs and home repair bills required to respond to this recent weather could push them over the edge.  And there are still months of winter still ahead! 

Donations can be made at www.aarp.org/disasterrelief.  Act now to avert a serious senior crisis!
