Volunteer to help families gain financial stability

United Way of Greater Toledo and Lucas County are looking for volunteers—experienced or not—to help with free tax preparation for working families and individuals.

The chief collaborators in this Coalition – United Way of Greater Toledo, Lucas County Treasurer Wade Kapszukiewicz, and Lucas County Commissioner Tina Skeldon Wozniak— offer this service each year.

One of the main goals is to help low-to-middle-income working families or individuals claim the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), which puts federal tax refund dollars back into the pockets of Lucas County residents and subsequently, our local economy.

“This is a hugely beneficial service for individuals and families to have their taxes prepared free of charge and learn about tax credits they may not realize they are eligible for,” said Michelle Davis, vice president of Community Outreach Services at United Way.

United Way is currently looking for dedicated volunteers willing to help these families with their tax preparation.

“Not only does this provide a great service to the community, but it’s a great way for residents to give back,” said Treasurer Kapszukiewicz. “This is a fantastic opportunity for seniors, students going into the financial field, residents who are currently out of work and looking to build their resume, or someone just looking for a temporary volunteer position.”

United Way provides training for all volunteers, no prior experience is needed, and time commitments are flexible.

If you are interested in giving back to your community in this way, dial 2-1-1 or email [email protected].
