Each year at this time, the local Mineola AARP Chapter 4202 invites local businesses to support our activities by buying advertisements in our monthly chapter newsletter. This contribution is used largely to underwrite the cost of printing and mailing our newsletter to local AARP members, keeping them informed of the activities of our local chapter and events of local programs and services available to them.
Your contribution will also allow us to continue our local community service activities. Our chapter participates in the local Meals on Wheels group operated out of Winthrop Hospital. This group delivers meals to the local elderly and ill. For some, this is an opportunity to catch up on local and non-local events. We also have an active food pantry group which collects food donations and delivers them to local food kitchens. We have another group that knits and crochets lap robes for delivery to Veteran’s hospitals, nursing homes, etc.
As you can surmise, your donation would be put to good use in your community. Please consider taking out an ad in our newsletter. We print ten issues a year (September – June). The cost for a year is only $100. I am enclosing a copy of our advertising page so you may see what your section would resemble.
If you decide to join us, please send your check and business card to our post office box listed below.
Thank you for your consideration in this matter.

Mineola AARP President
