Urgent Match: Extreme Cold Threatens Seniors
Extreme weather – including record-breaking low temperatures and wind chill across the country – could lead to a serious senior crisis unless we act now.
Seniors with limited incomes could face difficult choices in the weeks to come as heating and repair bills arrive. For older adults already living on the brink of survival, the increased heating costs and home repairs required to respond to this recent weather could push them over the edge – with months of winter still ahead.
AARP Foundation has created a Winter Emergency Relief Fund to respond to this growing crisis. All donations will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $250,000.
All funds will go directly toward efforts to help older Americans survive this harsh winter. AARP Foundation will focus on states across the Northeast and Midwest and will work with local AARP State offices to direct funds to organizations providing relief to those most in need.
