To the Editor,
As I enter my second year volunteering with Jones County Volunteer Center and the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, I want to reach out to my fellow community members. I want to share with you how satisfying it is to engage in such a volunteer opportunity.
We’re not just preparing taxes, we are assisting low income individuals and families to sustain financial well being. While getting taxes prepared can cost upwards of $100 or more, many families cannot afford the commitment. However, with our VITA program, the preparation is free!
