AARP California is proud to present Lisa Oakley with the 2018 AARP Andrus Award for Community Service. This is the association's most prestigious volunteer award that recognizes outstanding individuals who are sharing their experience, talents and skills to enrich the lives of others.
At AARP we know it takes time to build great communities, but we also believe that quick action can spark longer-term progress. The  AARP Community Challenge grant provides communities across the country with the chance to fund quick action projects that can inspire change in areas such as transportation, open spaces, housing, and other innovative ideas to improve communities and make them better places to live for all ages and abilities.
Do you know a volunteer age 50+ who is using their skills and experience to make a significant difference in your community?

AARP California wants to help you take control of your finances. We are sharing DIY tips and tools bi-weekly on social media to help you save more or begin to save. Here is a summary of what was shared in December!
