VITA Volunteers Needed

Dedicated volunteers are needed to help VITA provide free tax preparation services to people with limited incomes. By helping working families take advantage of programs like the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), you can help bring in millions of dollars to the local community — dollars to help families jumpstart their savings, reduce debt and invest in our community.
