Volunteers are needed! Please join us on Sunday, Sept. 11 on the National Mall to help pack healthy meals for seniors living with hunger.
More than 13 percent of Washington D.C. households contain seniors struggling with poverty and food insecurity. That’s why NBC4 has teamed up with the AARP Foundation to bring together more than 5,000 volunteers to pack 1.5 million meals.
We hope this event, held on the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks, will be the largest meal-packing event to help struggling seniors that live in or around Washington D.C.
NBC4 and our sister station, Telemundo 44, are #Working4You in our communities in D.C., Maryland and Virginia.
Join NBC4; Lisa Marsh Ryerson, president of the AARP Foundation; Jo Ann Jenkins, AARP CEO; the Capital Area Food Bank and your neighbors to pack meals.
