  • Tax Preparation Volunteers Needed

    United Way Services of Geauga County is partnering with Geauga County’s AARP Tax Aide program in an effort to help provide more area residents with tax preparation assistance this upcoming tax season. Last year the program was able to help over 770 people by preparing and filing their taxes for them. In Ohio, that is a savings of $256 in tax preparation costs alone. This doesn’t include deductions and credits the volunteer tax preparers often find that previously were overlooked.

    We are looking for more volunteers in 2018 so we can help more people. Help out your friends and neighbors here in Geauga County by providing a valuable resource and helping people keep money in their pockets!

    The weather is cooling and the snowflakes will be flying. This should bring the delight and beauty of the holidays. For some, it just brings more financial burden and emotional pain. There are many families working hard but struggling to keep food on the table. With your help, we can share our joy with those in need and make their holidays brighter.


    Great music is always a part of these holidays and so members of this community have joined together as the Good Tidings choir with this event for 28 years to begin the season and help their neighbors. The members have ranged from ages 15 to 93 and take their vision to raise funds for the Geauga Hunger Task Force seriously. Hope is our mission.
