Sunshine Box Packing

On August 2 and September 6, local AARP volunteers packed more than 2000 boxes of food at the Second Harvest Food Bank for senior clients in the community.  That makes eight days so far this year where volunteers helped those who struggle with food insecurity.  We will be packing again the first Tuesdays of October and November!

Musik Fest

This year, AARP Pennsylvania showed up at Bethlehem’s Musik Fest in a bigger and louder way. On August 5-7, 27 local volunteers endured the weather to talk to hundreds of festival-goers about AARP and our Take A Stand commitment to Social Security.
