Make a Difference
One way you can take on the day is by volunteering. Volunteering has an enormous impact on the health and well-being of your local community. As an AARP volunteer, you are helping with the promise of a better life for you or someone else. Whether you would like to be an in-office support, speaker on advocacy issues, or helping at an event AARP has many ways that you can make a difference. Be a part of the AARP team and volunteer with us.

In celebration of Asian American/Pacific Islander Month, AARP NY is featuring profiles of members and volunteers on Long Island.  Mona Ng has been an active volunteer since 2015 and has lived on Long Island for over 30 years.  She also spends her time volunteering at a Chinese cultural center, a hospital and at senior centers on the island and says “Giving back to the community gives me a lot of satisfaction.”  Her avid volunteerism garnered her a nomination last year for North Hempstead’s annual May W. Newburger Women's Roll of Honor.
