It was a beautiful day to give back to the Washington, DC region as AARP DC volunteers help to pack one million meals to feed the most vulnerable. Older people, veterans and first responders go hungry everyday and AARP Foundation's "A Celebration of Service" focused on those who are in need the most on the day of service and observance.
Helena, Mont., Sept. 1, 2015 — AARP Montana announced today that it will host community shredding events and food drives across Montana as part of its 2015 National Day of Service.  Every year, Patriot Day and National Day of Service & Remembrance is observed to remember those who were lost and honor the heroes who responded to the tragic events on September 11, 2001. Since that time, thousands of AARP staff, members and volunteers have joined in the National Day of Service by volunteering in their communities all across America.
In the wake of overwhelming tragedy, 9/11 generated one of the most spontaneous and durable outpourings ever of dedication to helping others. AARP designates Sept. 11 of each year as a National Day of Service in which AARP staff, members and volunteers are invited to give back to their local communities.
