As far back as I can remember, I’ve always volunteered my time to help others in need. One of the events I’m working on is to feed a family at Christmas. Our church collects goods and toys for a specific family in need and every year the kids get involved with helping. I think it’s important that they learn while they are young that they need to help give to those in need. We let them help pick out foods/dry goods and personal hygiene products as well as toys depending on the ages of the kids we are helping for that year. We also purchase the items to make a full Christmas meal the day we take the goods to our adopted Christmas family. It feels great being able to help a family in need but it also helps teach the kids how they can do their part to help end hunger. After all, they are our next generation.

Another way I like to volunteer to help is to bake a meal for the elderly. I live in a town that is about 90% populated by the elderly so I have a chance to see first hand how hard it can be for the elderly to afford to sit down to a decent meal. I enjoy cooking/baking and it feels good helping those in need. I know of several elderly persons in my town that don’t have family or that don’t have family near by. They are so appreciative of anything anyone in our community does for them and it makes them feel good to know that they were thought of in this way. The reason I’m so passionate about encouraging others to help feed the elderly as well as helping myself is because 10 million Americans aged 50+ are affected by hunger.

You may not have time to volunteer in the ways that I do but that’s okay. You can still give back when you use your AARP Credit Card from Chase. Together, Chase and the AARP Foundation are fighting hunger and putting food on the tables of Americans 50+. Anytime anyone makes a purchase with their AARP Credit Card from Chase, they will make a donation to the AARP Foundation’s Drive To End Hunger. Since 2011, Chase has donated nearly $7 million.

    Volunteering is such an important thing to do with family and friends to get everyone focused on something outside of themselves. I love the idea of this campaign and hope it continues throughout the year, not just during the holidays.

    Volunteering is such a great way to give back. We always try to volunteer during the holidays. Food insecurity is such a problem in America.
