Volunteer and Learn: Tax Prep Outreach
February 18 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Volunteer and Learn is an opportunity for a more in-depth volunteer experience. Participants learn from experts on the issue, then roll up their sleeves and help out as hands-on volunteers.
United Way’s Tax Prep Campaign began in 2003 with a single tax site in White Center and has grown to include more than a dozen tax sites plus virtual tax help. To date, we’ve served more than 150,000 clients and distributed more than $200 million in refunds, of which $62 million was in Earned Income Tax Credits and $70 million was in Child Tax Credits. Come learn more about the important work our tax prep team does from the inside out with a community services expert and work with fellow volunteers to get the word out about the free tax prep services available in the community.
Saturday 2/18 (11AM-1PM), @ Location TBD at a Free Tax Site
- Volunteers will get an introduction to United Way of King County & Free Tax Preparation Campaign. You’ll learn about how it works, who it serves, and why it’s such a powerful tool to help families become financially stable.
- After the educational segment, volunteers will help get the word about our free tax prep services in the community by walking to homes within the neighborhood immediately surrounding the tax site and putting information on residents’ door knobs.
- Please note that this event will require walking on light hills and uneven surfaces in residential neighborhoods.
By signing up for this project you are committing to participating in the educational and outreach component on Saturday 2/18.
