(3TV/CBS 5) -- Maybe you need resources to help you with day-to-day living or perhaps you are looking to help out and volunteer your time to helping people.

AARP Arizona has so much dedicated to people 50 or older.

They are people in that age group who may be retired and looking for worthwhile ways to spend their time.

AARP's Alex Juarez explains whats under their 'Create The Good' program.

"We have volunteer opportunities where they can not only work within AARP but outside of AARP," says Juarez. "We at AARP Arizona are always looking for volunteers to help us at our events, a walk, a hike a bike safety clinic, any type of event our volunteers help us out."

There are also services through AARP that can assist older adults with taxes, help them improve driving skills and a lot more. 

A lot of church congregations need ministry volunteers and offer services specifically for older adults.

Start your mornings with anchor Yetta Gibson weekdays from 4:30 a.m. to 7 a.m. on CBS 5 This Morning. Her passion is telling great stories, getting out and about to meet and talk to people in the community, and making what she calls "that comfortable connection" with her viewers.

The major problem with AARP is that they are a powerful PAC and go after representatives with socialist leanings. Just watch what they demand along towards election time. If you are not a socialist do not give your money to them.

I thought they were basically an insurance company, though they don't target low income people with their ads. They do sponsor (?) some federal. grants, more in line with republicans, I would guess.
