2019 is half over already and it was a busy time for us here at United Way's 2-1-1! We took on a new project of making tax appointments for our friends in Marshfield and that really kept us on our toes. We took over 2500 calls in the first half of the year with 702 being tax appointments.
Top 5 Calls for 2019:
- AARP Tax Aide Program
- Affordable Housing
- Utility Payment Assistance
- Mental Health & Addictions
- Food Pantries
As you can see, we have been providing lots of community resources to our callers and also helping them keep more of their hard earned money in their pockets with making free tax appointments. The last half of the year will not be any different. We will still be busy helping our callers the best way we can by connecting them with local services right in their community.
