The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Are you good with numbers, do you like helping others? If so, we have an opportunity for you! We are looking for volunteers to join the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide program which provides free tax return preparation services for low to moderate income taxpayers in your local communities. We have opportunities for a variety of positions, from Counselors, Local Coordinators & Electronic Return Originators just to name a few. We are looking for enthusiastic individuals who are comfortable with computers and would like to assist area residents with preparation and filing of their Federal & State Tax Returns. Prior tax preparation experience is helpful, but not required, our dedicated team of volunteers are also there to train and support you using professional tax preparation software as you join our team. Volunteers are needed throughout the tax season (February 1st - April 15th). We are located at the Hamden Senior Center in Hamden, Connecticut, working Tuesdays and Fridays from 8 AM to 1 PM. Won't you consider joining this wonderful group of volunteers! If you are interested, please visit www.aarp.org/tavolunteer, click on the gold "become a volunteer" box, and a Local Coordinator in your area will get back to you. We look forward to speaking with you!
