Katharine Zurek is a VISTA at NMCAA in Traverse City. She shares her September 11 Day of Service Story highlighting what it meant to her to volunteer for the United Way annual "Day of Caring". This lovely story features her sister Julia who was paired up with her to help the Traverse Area Recreation & Transportation Trail (TART Trails).
NMCAA, a non-profit, has served a 10 county service area for over 39 years through housing, budget counseling, senior nutrition, head start, weatherization programs, and free homebuyer education and financial fitness workshops at all three office locations throughout the year.
NMCAA is gearing up for the 2014 tax season. As a volunteer, you will help low-income residents by preparing and filing their tax returns and helping them apply for credits they are eligible for and need.
Tax preparation will be located at all 3 of the agencies offices, Traverse City Michigan Works! office, the DHS office in Kalkaska, and area libraries in Bellaire, Benzonia, Boyne City, Charlevoix, Leland and Roscommon.
Tax preparation experience is preferred. Training and testing will be provided. To become a tax preparer volunteer, contact Latitia Garthe-Shiner at (231) 947-3780 or (800) 632-7334. She can also be reached via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
