Many older Americans have experienced some relief from the economic storms of the Great Recession. Others, though, remain at sea, buffeted by waves of foreclosure, unemployment and — for nearly 9 million — hunger.

Thanks to the tremendous support we have received from individual donors and our corporate and foundation supporters, AARP Foundation was able to extend a much-needed helping hand, allowing 5.5 millions seniors to keep their financial heads above water.

Without your commitment and help, reaching people in need and providing them with programs that so deeply and powerfully impact their lives would be impossible. 

Volunteer today and help bring relief to more seniors who are struggling to meet their basic needs. Find volunteer opportunities near you.
