Southern WV EITC
Ten years ago after teaching middle school mathematics for thirty years, I retired from the education system and began searching for activities to occupy my “free time”. I was already highly involved in church activities locally and regionally and had participated in several volunteer mission trips to Russia, Alaska, Mississippi and West Virginia projects.
Within weeks after retirement, a close friend and employee of MountainHeart – Summersville told me about the VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program offered by their office. Knowing that I had spent my career working with numbers and computers, she asked if I might be willing to volunteer. Then within days I was training and began assisting tax-payers in the 2008 tax season.
