Tacoma's Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program

My name is Cate and I work at the non-profit South Sound Outreach located in the Hilltop Neighborhood here in Tacoma. With tax season approaching, we are launching another year of our VITA program, where we help low-income individuals and families prepare their taxes free of charge.

I am reaching out to organizations to recruit volunteers for VITA, and thought UPS would be a great resource to reach out to students. Not only is there a great community need for volunteers in this program, but the experience of volunteering for VITA has proved to be very valuable for students in years past, as they gain community partnerships and skills.
