The Pulse of the Community: Be a part of the change
Volunteer with us!
United Way of Greater Mercer County is seeking volunteers to join the free tax program. Working families and individuals who make less than $65,000 a year in Mercer County can benefit from this program.
Last year, volunteers prepared over 2,500 free tax returns that provided total refunds of $2.7 million. Struggling families can use the savings from tax preparation fees and refunds to cover food, housing, medical, transportation and debt expenses.
Be a part of this vital resource to increase financial security for struggling families in Mercer County.
No prior tax experience required
Flexible volunteer hours (3-4 hour blocks)
Tax professionals can earn Continuing Education Credits
If you or someone you know needs health insurance, the time to act is
now. Affordable Health Coverage (ACA) enrollment opens tomorrow!
Here are a few fast facts about getting covered through
Coverage could be cheaper than you think. Most people signing up for coverage on HealthCare.gov can find plans with monthly premiums for $50-$100 month thanks to financial help. Last year, more than 8 in 10 people qualified for financial help to make their monthly premiums more affordable.
Don't forget: You must sign up by December 15. Enroll today.
