So Many Ways to Give Back

This year marks the 10th anniversary of AARP’s Annual Day of Service. AARP staff and volunteers all around the country and in South Dakota are finding ways to give back, make a difference and help their community.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of AARP’s Annual Day of Service. AARP staff and volunteers all around the country and in South Dakota are finding ways to give back, make a difference and help their community.

What started as a response to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack has grown into a nationwide commitment to serving others. Previously held in early May, AARP’s Day of Service is now held in conjunction with the National Day of Service set for September 11, 2011.

AARP South Dakota staff will team up with Feeding South Dakota, providing several hours of service at the Food Bank in Sioux Falls. All across the state AARP volunteers have committed to various community service projects including assisting with flood clean-up and recovery, collecting school supplies for kids in need, and working with local agencies to fight hunger.

Making a difference doesn’t end there! Once again AARP South Dakota is supporting Volunteer Sioux Falls, the annual, community-wide day of service sponsored by the HELP!Line Center. Set for the last Saturday in September, more than 1500 volunteers are expected to be out in force helping with projects throughout Sioux Falls. AARP South Dakota is encouraging those living in and around Sioux Falls to consider participating in this important service opportunity as well.
