As they did last year, many local businesses participated in the AARP Chapter food drives making the effort a true community affair. With Maine ranking ninth in the nation for food insecurity, it is especially important for us all to be aware of the needs of others.
AARP was founded more than 50 years ago by a retired educator, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus, who recognized the power of community and the difference each one of us can make through "creating the good." We applaud the AARP chapters for their dedication and generosity.
