As part of its robust response to the coronavirus pandemic, AARP announced a recent $250,000 donation to Meals on Wheels America to support urgently needed outreach to isolated seniors. The gift is significant because it will allow Meals on Wheels America to boost the organizational capacity of the network to provide in-home meals to the most at-risk older population during this time of crisis. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has said that older Americans are particularly vulnerable to COVID-19.
PLEASE READ: This is a time of great uncertainty for all of us as we confront the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and work to keep ourselves and our families safe. At this time, AARP Maine, out of a preponderance of caution, has made the decision to suspend all community programs through April 2020. We appreciate your understanding. Please visit www.aarp.org/coronavirus for the latest information about the outbreak, what public agencies are doing and how you and your families can protect yourselves. If you have specific questions, you can call the Maine 211 Hotline that has been set up to provide Maine- based information.
Scams and frauds are on the rise, but Mainers can take active steps to protect themselves and their families. AARP Maine is once again collaborating with community partners to host free shredding events. All of our events will also include safe disposal of your unwanted or expired medications. Please join us and bring your friends and family!
AARP is here to help you take on today – and every day. From sharing practical resources, to holding fun activities and events, AARP is providing opportunities to connect and help build an even stronger Detroit, Southeast Michigan, and Michigan for all ages to live, work and play. We hope you’ll join us!
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.
New York State has long been home to some of the most ethnically diverse neighborhoods in the nation. New York’s ethnic communities—primarily comprised of African American/Black, Asian American/Pacific Islander and Hispanic/Latino populations are not only growing, but also aging at a rapid pace. Given these changing demographics, AARP is partnering with thought leaders, elected officials and leading organizations that serve New York’s ethnic communities in a multi-year effort to identify disparities that exist among their ethnic 50-plus communities and fight for solutions to disrupt these disparities. AARP’s purpose has always been to empower people to choose how to live as they age.
