AARP Love and Relationships Ambassador Dr. Pepper Schwartz joins AARP volunteers to lend a hand at Books for Africa during the Fall 2013 Life@50+ in Atlanta.
En español | In 2013, AARP once again hosted a large-scale voluntourism project as a kick-off to the Life@50+ National Event and Expo in Atlanta. Volunteers enjoyed a day of service as we spread out across the Big Peach to leave a lasting legacy in this wonderful city.
On Thursday, Oct. 3, 2013, James "JB" Brown, Dan Marino and Dr. Pepper Schwartz along with hundreds of AARP volunteers assembled in groups and were transported into neighborhoods of need in and around Atlanta. Each neighborhood featured a variety of work opportunities — activities that supported the cultivation of the community: building, home and school refurbishing, landscaping, mentoring, green projects, construction of community gardens, senior community center revitalization. In addition to the Community Day of Service on Thursday, AARP Foundation hosted a meal-packing activity on Saturday, Oct. 5, at the Georgia World Congress Center.
There was something for people of every ability — low-impact to high-impact activities — and at the end of our day, volunteers left behind a positive and historic mark on the city of Atlanta and its residents. We offered half-day opportunities and all supplies, transportation and project leadership were provided.
