Would you recommend Community Action Partnership of Lancaster and Saunders Counties?

I am providing volunteer support with the VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program and have discovered the huge need for assistance. The need for volunteers is huge, including anyone who can assist in providing language services. The staff are very knowledgable and easy to work with. They offer any training you may need.
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
