On Sunday, September 11th and Monday, September 12th, AARP DC volunteers and staff participated in the AARP Foundation's Celebration of Service Meal Pack Challenge. This year's Celebration of Service event paid tribute to all the veterans and retired first responders who have given so much of their lives in service to others. It also lifted senior poverty out of the shadows and shined a spotlight on the needs of older adults who are struggling to secure the essentials. With the help of over 3,000 volunteers, we packed 1.5 million meals for our region's struggling seniors!
Looking for a way to give back? AARP volunteers from the Oak Lawn area will be accepting donations to benefit Mrs. Jacky's Soldiers - a private effort to provide care packages to soldiers oversees. Since 2003, Mrs. Jacky, an Oak Lawn resident, has been sending care packages on a weekly basis to area residents stationed in Afghanistan. You can help by making a donation at our community event on September 11th!
