VITA program seeks volunteers
Tri-CAP’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program offers free tax preparation and e-filing services to low and moderate income households. No experience needed. Volunteers receive free training to become IRS Certified and prepare basic tax returns in local communities, which is also a great asset on a resume. For CPAs, the volunteer time also provides continuing professional education credits from the IRS. The Tri-CAP VITA sites are located in St. Cloud and Waite Park. Training begins mid-January and the season ends in April 15.
Volunteer Positions Available:
• Tax Site Assistant:
• Tax Preparer:

Habitat for Humanity needs snow removal
Central Minnesota Habitat for Humanity needs volunteers to shovel snow on properties that Habitat owns but there is not a homeowner on the property yet. Locations are in the St. Cloud area. Volunteers are asked to adopt a property and shovel as needed through the winter. The time is flexible for the volunteer’s schedule, but the shovel needs to be done in a timely manner after a snowfall. For more information, please contact Jess at 320-248-8256 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
