Maryland State Delegate Barbara Robinson has recognized AARP Maryland for its commitment to honoring all U.S. military personnel who served during the Vietnam War. Under the leadership and initiative of volunteer and Baltimore resident John Henkel, AARP Maryland has partnered with the U.S. Department of Defense and presented more than 600 Vietnam and Vietnam-Era veterans with an official Welcome Home lapel pin and Presidential Proclamation honoring their service and sacrifice on behalf of a grateful nation.
AARP Maryland volunteers make a real difference in the community every day, whether it's through teaching community groups about fraud, advocating for caregivers, helping at a health fair or hosting a shredding event. You can chair an event committee or serve as a greeter -- we need all of your talents! As a volunteer you are free to choose how much time you would like to give. Most volunteer from two to four hours a week, either on a regular schedule or to fill in as needed. Fill out our volunteer interest form now and we'll contact you with more information, or email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Volunteer interest."
