Volunteer with The International Rescue Committee
The International Rescue Committee (IRC) in San Diego is a refugee resettlement agency that resettles refugees from all parts of the world into the City Heights and El Cajon communities. They runs a free tax preparation program for their clients and other community members to receive free tax services at our offices.
This program has been hugely successful in the past, with last year’s program resulting in just under 2 million dollars in tax refunds for our Mid-City clients. For some of the refugee families that have only recently arrived to the U.S., their tax refunds can make up to a quarter of their yearly income, so it makes a huge impact in their lives.
If you would like to participate as a volunteer, attend their Volunteer Orientation TONIGHT 6:30 – 7:30pm in the Asante #123 AD classroom, located next to Great Hall in Eleanor Roosevelt College.
Or sign up for a volunteer orientation at their website, where you can meet with the staff that will be running this year’s Tax Program: http://www.rescue.org/us-program/us-san-diego-ca/irc-volunteer-process. Questions? Contact Volunteer Coordinator Alexy Andrade at Alexy.Andrade@Rescue.org.
