AARP Arizona Applauds Governor Ducey’s $5.3 Million for Meals on Wheels for AZ Seniors

Posted on 03/25/20

AARP AZ applauds Governor Doug Ducey’s decision to release $5.3 Million for Meals on Wheels. These resources will help make sure that seniors get nutritious meals delivered to their homes so they remain safe and healthy. We know how important it is to keep our socially distancing and it is critical that seniors take the Governors concerns about minimizing crowd sizes. These resources will also help the nonprofits who provide meals on wheels with the resources to meet the ongoing demand.

“We are very thankful to hear that Arizona will receive $5.3 million to help those in need, especially our vulnerable seniors,” said Dana Marie Kennedy, AARP AZ State Director.

In its mission to keep our 50 plus community informed, AARP Arizona launched a resource informational page https://states.aarp.org/arizona/health-food-help-coronavirus-covid-19-arizona to help during these difficult times.

We are also proud to announce the AARP Community Connections, a new online platform launched by AARP Innovation Labs today, that allows users to organize and find local volunteer groups to help pick up groceries, provide financial assistance or lend emotional support to neighbors, friends and loved ones. Across the country, these informal online groups—also called “mutual aid” groups—help communities stay connected at a time when people must practice social distancing to stay safe.
