Benefits of Volunteering with GRABC
Why Should I Become a VITA Volunteer?
Serving at a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) site is a very rewarding opportunity and offers a unique way to strengthen our community. On average, each service hour volunteered brings in over $750 of federal and state income tax refunds back into our community. GRABC is serving only about 25% of families who are income eligible for this money-saving service. Your participation will extend our legacy of outreach to our community’s most vulnerable citizens. By joining the VITA team to assist working low-to-moderate income families you will help create a WIN, WIN, WIN situation.
