AARP Foundation President Lisa Marsh Ryerson announced the AARP Foundation has created a relief fund to help the victims -- especially those over 50 -- of the historic flooding that ravaged Louisiana.
AARP will match contributions, dollar for dollar, up to $250,000 for the fund, which will provide relief and recovery support to victims.
“The devastation in Louisiana is heartbreaking, and many older adults who already struggle to make ends meet now find themselves facing a multitude of additional hurdles,” Ryerson said.
Donations to the AARP Foundation can be done through AARP Foundation’s secure website, where 100 percent of the tax-deductible donations will be used to help the victims of this disaster.
