food drive
Nationwide, more than 8 million adults aged 50 to 64 rely on charitable food assistance to help make ends meet. Not wanting to be a burden, they often suffer in silence. They are more likely to experience chronic illnesses like Diabetes, depression, reduced muscle mass and bone density, and poor vision. They are our family, our friends, and our neighbors - and AARP Virginia is committed to ending their hunger.

Drive to End Hunger Vertical
Nearly 1 in 8 residents of the nation’s capital struggle with hunger, and the annual AARP D.C. Drive to End Hunger aims to help. AARP is hosting an orientation Sept. 18 to train volunteers, who will greet shoppers and collect nonperishable food at area grocery stores Oct. 3-4. All donations will go to the Capital Area Food Bank and local pantries.
animal rescue volunteer
They're in the community every day - volunteering, making a difference, lending their time and talent to help others in need.  They work in food banks and animal shelters, in schools and in hospitals.  They are often unsung heroes, working and giving without recognition or thanks -  just because it's the right thing to do.  If you know an extraordinary volunteer age 50 or older, show your appreciation by nominating him or her for the 2014 AARP Nevada Andrus Award for Community Service!
