AARP New York volunteers are a dynamic group of people using skills they’ve cultivated. They work to improve the lives of fellow New Yorkers — and not just folks age 50 and older. They may attend a hip hop concert and hand out fliers about Medicare. They might lend a hand at food drives around Thanksgiving. Or they may travel to Albany to make sure the governor and state legislators are aware of vital issues, like caregiving support and unaffordable prescription drug prices. Whether you love meeting new people, working on projects that matter to your community, or speaking up on issues that impact people 50 and older, AARP has a role for you.
The 1970s were a golden era of filmmaking so it’s fitting that AARP presents a film series celebrating their golden anniversary. The free event also marks a community theater celebrating its 50th!
