Before Thanksgiving, make a gift to fight senior hunger

Written By: Kim Hong - Nov• 19•12

Last year, UnitedHealthcare employees volunteered at events designed to eradicate senior hunger in southern California. As part of the “Do Good. Live Well.” volunteer initiative, employees packed food boxes at the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. In addition to the volunteer projects, UnitedHealthcare offices in the Los Angeles and Orange County areas will be hosting food drives. Both of these “Do Good. Live Well.” volunteer events are in support of AARP’s Drive to End Hunger campaign, which seeks to end hunger among seniors.

 

Across the country, nearly 9 million older Americans struggle with hunger. Many must make the difficult choice between paying for food, medicine, or heat – a decision no one should have to make.

AARP Foundation is working to prevent hunger among older adults – this Thanksgiving and beyond – by connecting seniors with community resources, improving the quality of items at food banks, and more. But with winter approaching and new challenges in the year ahead, we urgently need more resources to continue this life-changing work.
