Volunteers, mealpack, AARP Foundation, Get Involved

In honor of National Volunteer Week, we want to express our deepest gratitude for our volunteers.

Thank You, Volunteers!

AARP Foundation’s volunteers fuel our work in communities across the country. Without the millions who donate their time, skills and passion, we wouldn’t have enough capacity to help struggling older adults transform their lives.
