AARP DC Celebrates with Day of Service

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! 

AARP DC partnered with the Legal Counsel for the Elderly and the AARP Virginia and Maryland State Offices to provide information to the public throughout the event on volunteer opportunities,  Caregiving, Fraud Prevention and Legal Services available through AARP.  The Celebration of Service event is just one of the many ways to volunteer with AARP.  The AARP DC State Office is currently recruiting new volunteers to assist with ongoing community outreach and advocacy for needs of 50 + seniors across the District.
