One of the ways we promote financial stability in our region is by providing free tax assistance to families who make less than $64,000 annually. Last year, our Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program served more than 9,000 hard-working families with refunds of more than $15,000,000 returned back to our community. Through VITA tax preparation fees are waived and all available income tax credits are leveraged, meaning no money was left on the table for families that need every penny.
This year, we want to reward them with a dinner night out and you can help. Whether your donation comes from your tax returns or you just have an extra few dollars laying around, you can help give positive reinforcement to a deserving family. Give today either because it makes you feel good or because you understand that the more families in our community who are financially stable, the better off our community will be.
