Creating Impact

Tax Time Savings Workshop
In partnership with the Wilson County Department of Social Services, this workshop encourages saving part of tax refund for emergencies. We examined budgeting strategies, opportunities for savings, and the participants were entered into Food Lion gift card drawings and connected to Doorway to Dreams national $25,000 drawing for people across the country who saved part of their refunds. Workshop materials are available via email to any interested Volunteer Income Tax Assistance site in the state by emailing donna@cultureofsavings.org.
