The week of Labor Day, AARP will gear up to host its second voluntourism project of 2014 as the kickoff to the first AARP Ideas@50+ National Event and Expo. The city of San Diego will welcome AARP and its attendees as we embark on the grounds of local neighborhoods and communities, engaging residents in areas that impact their lives daily. Come enjoy a day of service as we spread out across the San Diego area to leave a lasting legacy in this wonderful city.
On Thursday, Sept. 4, hundreds of AARP volunteers will assemble in groups and be transported into neighborhoods of need in San Diego, as well as participate in various projects inside the San Diego Convention Center. Each neighborhood will feature a variety of work opportunities — activities that will support the cultivation of the community, such as home refurbishing, landscaping, mentoring, green projects, construction of community gardens and senior community center revitalization. There will be something for people of every ability — low-impact to high-impact activities — and at the end of our day, volunteers will leave behind a positive and historic mark in San Diego. We will offer half-day opportunities, providing all supplies, transportation and project leadership. Details of the projects we will be supporting in San Diego are coming soon.
In addition to the Community Day of Service on Thursday, AARP Foundation will host a three-day meal-packing activity from Thursday, Sept. 4, to Saturday, Sept. 6, on the exhibit floor of the San Diego Convention Center. If you're not able to join us for one of the indoor or outdoor volunteer activities on our Community Day of Service, consider signing up for one or all three of the meal-packing days and help impact hunger needs in the community. All meals packed will be donated to the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank for distribution to organizations across the San Diego area.
So please join us and our community partner, Boston Cares, and be part of the Ideas@50+ San Diego Community Day of Service.
