From August 22 - September 14, AARP Foundation is launching its Drive to End Hunger summer campaign to help hungry seniors. Your dedication, combined with the contributions of your family and friends, can make the difference between a senior going to bed well-nourished or going to bed hungry.
With your support, we can raise critical funds to help bring an end to senior hunger. We are asking supporters like you who care about senior hunger to spread the word to your friends and family and ask them to give even a small amount to help.
And, as a volunteer fundraiser, every gift you raise on behalf of AARP Foundation will make you eligible for some great gifts:
an opportunity to meet Jeff Gordon and attend the Charlotte Bank of America Race on October 13, 2012
- an autographed piece of #24 race metal
- a Drive to End Hunger fire suit jacket worn by a Pit Crew member

Nearly 9 million people age 50+ won’t just wake up hungry tomorrow -- they’ll most likely be hungry the day after tomorrow, next week and next month, too. Thanks to rising food prices and meager incomes, many older Americans are having trouble getting enough to eat. And our country’s hunger safety net is at a breaking point.
Your support is vital to AARP Foundation and helping us raise critical funds for this urgent need. “We know that in every community there are hungry seniors who struggle just to get the basics. But we also know the solution is simple: If we pitch in with even just a small donation, we can feed millions of seniors who would otherwise go without. The Drive to End Hunger summer campaign allows supporters to reach out to their friends and family and help stop hunger in its tracks,” said Jo Ann Jenkins, AARP Foundation president.
Together we can put an end to senior hunger.
