Community involvement is an important part of AARP’s Mission

Knoxville, TN (April 2016) – AARP Services Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of AARP that oversees providers and the products offered to its members, recognizes Blake McCoy, of Independent Insurance Consultants for 50+ volunteer hours through the ACES community service program.

Blake McCoy has displayed exceptional community service in Knoxville and the surrounding counties, by volunteering and supporting numerous senior citizen organizations. He is also a recognized leader in his industry and loves helping senior citizens.

“We believe in the power of one,” says Lawrence Flanagan, president of AARP Services Inc. “One AARP encouraging members ‘to serve, not to be served,’ which was the motto of AARP’s founder Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus’, and now we applaud the power of one person in their community making a difference.”

“I’m honored to be recognized by AARP Services Inc. for helping out in the community,” said Blake McCoy. “I look forward to continuing to be an ACES volunteer; it’s such a rewarding experience!”

Part of AARP’s social mission, the ACES program tracks the volunteer service hours of people who are authorized to offer AARP-branded products, and engage and serve the community. Those wishing to make a difference in their own neighborhood can go to to find local volunteer opportunities.
