From the AARP Bulletin Print Edition, April 1, 2010
When USA Weekend magazine announces the winners of its Make a Difference Day competition on April 18, two community service projects will receive awards sponsored by AARP’s Create the Good effort. The $5,000 AARP awards recognize projects that help people stay in their own homes as they age.
AARP’s award recipients are the Fairfield (Calif.) Community Services Foundation for the city’s Senior Home Assistance Repair Event, and the Wilkes (N.C.) Habitat for Humanity for a home-repair event coordinated by the Volunteer Coalition of Wilkes County.
National Volunteer Week is April 18-24. Find opportunities at Create the Good.
