AARP Services, a for-profit subsidiary of AARP that oversees providers and the products offered to its members, recognized Kenneth Scanavino for his 50-plus hours of volunteer service in the community.
Scanavino has volunteered at his church (Green Valley Community Church) in the Saturday morning Clothing and Food giveaway. He helps his wife, Mary, who is the Clothes Closet leader.
“We believe in the power of one,” said John Wilder, president of AARP Services Inc. “AARP is encouraging members ‘to serve, not to be served,’ which was one of AARP founder Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus’ mottos, and the power of one person in their community to make a difference.”
AARP Services tracks the volunteer service hours of agents who are authorized to offer AARP-branded products and who engage and serve the community.
“I am honored to be recognized by AARP and ASI for the hours of community service I performed,” said Scanavino. “And I look forward to continuing to volunteer.”
