Supper Club Volunteer – Spring Terrace

“Cooking for friends and family is something I have always enjoyed. The supper club gave me the perfect opportunity to volunteer my time and do what I like to do. Serving the folks at Spring Terrace and spending time with them has been a wonderful experience. I am very thankful to all my friends – I could not do this without them.”

Community Tax Centers Volunteer

“I love working in the Community Tax Centers! Every time I walk into a Tax Center I know I’ll have a meaningful impact on members of our community. Filing taxes can be stressful, overwhelming, and expensive for a lot of people. Being able to remove that stress and expense can make an incredible difference in their lives, and I’m thrilled to be a part of that.”
