Goal: $200,000 by MIDNIGHT Wednesday
Paul: 10 million seniors will go hungry on Thanksgiving. We need your help to reach them.
Will you be a hero for hungry seniors today?
Yet that’s all some seniors will eat next Thursday.
While we’re feasting on dinner with family and friends, more than 10 million seniors will be struggling just to make it through the day.
That’s the appalling state of senior hunger in America — and it’s time we did something about it.
Make a charitable gift of $16 or whatever you can afford to fight senior hunger before Thanksgiving.
Paul, sometimes I wish I could pretend that senior hunger was a myth, that the reports were wrong. But the fact is that this tragedy is unfolding right here in America — today. Already, more than 10 million older Americans are facing hunger, and more are at risk.
These hungry seniors are our neighbors, people we pass on the street or say hi to at the post office. They’re in every community across the country, suffering silently just to get enough food to make it through the day.
It’s heartbreaking — but together, we can help. Already this year, we’ve delivered more than 4 million meals through community meal pack events across the country, including a record-breaking two-day meal pack challenge in Washington, D.C. We piloted new, innovative solutions to senior food insecurity with the rollout of Grocery Guides programs that help older Americans make healthy, affordable choices in their local stores. And we’ve helped low-income seniors make healthy choices through our Fresh Savings program, which makes fresh fruits and vegetables more affordable for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) recipients. We’ve stood together to raise awareness about this problem — and committed to working together to solve it.
Help us raise $200,000 to fight senior hunger — every dollar makes a difference >>
I hope you’ll consider making a voluntary, charitable contribution to AARP Foundation, AARP’s charitable affiliate. For hungry seniors who have nowhere else to turn, your support can be a beacon of hope. Thanks in advance for standing with us this holiday season.
