MEDIA ADVISORY – White House Conference on Aging Kicks off with Volunteer Service Project

 

Delegates & Volunteers Restore D.C. Senior Center to Demonstrate
Importance of America’s Aging Getting Involved in Community Service

WHO:

Volunteers from Senior Corps will join delegates attending the White House Conference on Aging for Get Involved: A White House Conference on Aging Service Project. Together, they will rehabilitate the Educational Organization for United Latin Americans (EOFULA), a local community center for senior citizens, demonstrating the commitment America’s aging share in reshaping the world they live in and the importance of volunteering.

WHAT:

The service project is sponsored by the White House Conference on Aging (WHCoA), the Corporation for National and Community Service, and the Washington, DC Jewish Community Center. Volunteers will paint, repair, and weatherize the senior center to save on energy costs. They also will provide educational activities to the senior center’s clients including disaster preparedness workshops.

The service project highlights one of the key policy tracks of the White House Conference on Aging civic and social engagement by older Americans. Older Americans – and particularly the 77 million baby boomers approaching retirement age – are an untapped resource of extraordinary proportions that can help meet pressing community needs. On Dec. 12, the Corporation for National and Community Service will unveil a national public service campaign to attract more boomers into service, and delegates will be voting on resolutions including a National Strategy for Volunteering and reauthorizing the National and Community Service Act.

WHEN:

Sunday, December 11, 2005
10:00 am to 12:30pm

WHERE:

Educational Organization for United Latin Americans
1842 Calvert Street, NW, Washington, DC

AVAILABLE FOR INTERVIEWS:

  • David Eisner, CEO of The Corporation for National and Community Service
  • Tess Scannell – Director of Senior Corps
  • Volunteers
