Day of Caring

Volunteer teams, organized primarily by local companies, complete projects for local nonprofit agencies that often lack the necessary resources to tackle such important initiatives themselves.

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance
Our Free Tax Preparation Campaign is an IRS-approved VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program. VITA programs focus on serving low-income populations. These families frequently pay $50, $100 or even upwards of $300 for basic tax return filing through paid preparers, and they often miss out on tax credits available to lower income working people.
