AARP Foundation Announces A Celebration of Service on September 11



AARP Foundation will be packing over 1 million meals next Friday on the National Mall and we would love to be included in your daybook. The meals will be distributed to struggling seniors, first responders, and veterans. D.C. has one of the highest rates of seniors living in poverty, with 13.4 percent of all households in the area considered food insecure. 


Volunteers are encouraged to participate and join members from the community, government, local universities, non-profits, and members of the armed services to pay tribute to the service commitment that is now such an important part of September 11th.


People can sign up to participate and learn more at:


Thank you,
