Faced with the realities of low population density, and high human services needs, the Goshen County Community Action Team (CAT) has found several unique ways to serve its community. The Goshen County CAT has focused its programming on educational opportunities, increasing awareness of vital support and community services, and combating social isolation.
AARP Wyoming’s Casper Community Action Team (CAT) came to life in March 2018 as the first of its kind in the state. Community Action Teams are the new version of AARP Chapters and offer opportunities for like-minded people to engage in their communities in positive ways.
AARP has had a presence in Sheridan County since May 18, 1970, when the first Chapter was organized. The Chapter had a cadre of volunteers to conduct community service programs. One of the major projects of the Chapter was to assist the Sheridan Memorial Hospital in conducting its annual health fair, which provided an opportunity for the community to come to the hospital and obtain health screenings, lab testing, and meet with providers to discuss their overall health conditions. At its peak, the health fair drew over 5,000 people who came to the hospital for lab draws. Over the years and under numerous presidents, the Sheridan Chapter made positive impacts in the community serving older Americans.
AARP is accepting nominations for its 2020 Mississippi Andrus Award for Community Service, which honors 50+ Mississippians who are sharing their experience, talent, and skills to enrich the lives of their community members.
AARP District of Columbia is looking for people to join the Friendly Voices program, a virtual call center where volunteers chat with, and receive calls from, socially isolated adults.
AARP Connecticut will donate $3000 on behalf of the Andrus Award recipient to an eligible non-profit organization of their choosingNomination deadline is August 1
