little help around the yard, it’s always a wonderful feeling to know someone is there to lend a hand. AARP stands behind this. As a non-profit organization that empowers people to choose how they live their lives as they age, their motto is “To serve, not be served.” Their team prides itself on assisting senior communities—and they couldn’t do it without the help of their generous volunteers.
