Four communities will be the focus of AARP South Dakota’s efforts to Create The Good in 2010. Volunteers from our regional action teams have chosen Pierre, Mitchell, and Huron and Watertown as targeted communities for the coming year.
As part of AARP South Dakota’s targeted community program, volunteers will engage in a year long effort of community service that will have a lasting impact in a very visible way. Throughout the coming year, the AARP South Dakota state office staff will support our volunteers as they work to make a difference in each of these communities.
Making a difference is nothing new to AARP. AARP also has a long standing tradition of service. Giving back helps keep us active and healthy, while meeting urgent needs among our extended families, neighborhoods and the other communities to which we belong. Create The Good is simply a renewed commitment to service. Create the good makes it easy to share your time or talents in a way suits you, whether you have five minutes, a few hours or more.
We encourage you—no matter where you live—to get in the spirit of Create The Good. Via createthegood.org, you can post volunteer opportunities to find volunteers to fill a need in your community, search for volunteer opportunities by zip code and find a host of resources, tools, and ideas for giving back in a way that’s meaningful to you. It is that easy.
Whether you help a neighbor save money on their energy bills by helping winterize their home, start a food drive to feed the hungry in your community, or get your friends and neighbors on a path to healthier living, small steps can have a big impact. Together we really can Create The Good across South Dakota.
We want to hear from you! If you have an idea for projects in our targeted communities, or if you simply want to get involved in Create The Good where you live, visit createthegood.org, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
