Looking for a Volunteer Opportunity Helping Others?

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistant (VITA) is a program that assists individuals/families with income tax preparation during the tax season who meet the guidelines for help. This is a free service by the IRS in conjunction with NWCSA. Volunteers are preparing taxes during the weeks of tax season.  Greeters welcome clients, hand out paperwork, and help to make sure our clients have their required information for the tax preparers. Training for this position is minimal and requires good people skills and organization. Volunteer Tax preparers require at least 20 hours of training to become certified by the IRS. This certification is completed on line at your own pace before the tax season begins. At a minimum, a preparer needs to be certified through the basic level. But volunteers may certify through intermediate and advanced if interested.

Free stores are a great benefit to any community by offering clothing and other items at no cost to families in need. The free store is looking for volunteers to help sort, mark and display the clothing and other household donations that come in the building in the Superior and Ashland Offices. Just a couple of hours would help to make a difference.

If you would like to help in either of these, call and join our team. 715-392-5127 in Superior and 715-292-6400 in Ashland.

Volunteers are needed at Solid Rock, in the afternoon. Applications can be filled out at Northwest Community Service Agency, or at Solid Rock. After reviewing the applications and background check, we will call you and let you know when you can begin volunteering. We appreciate all our volunteers, they do a valuable service to our community. If you have questions, please call 715-392-5127.

NWCSA has several opportunities to volunteer in your community.  If you enjoy helping others and have a few hours, a day or more give us a call.  

Opportunities include:  

  • Helping out with the food shelf or Free Store at the main office.
  • Helping with the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) by filling food boxes once a month.
  • Working directly with seniors by teaching a craft project, needlework or other skill.
  • Looking for a day volunteer for men's shelter Monday - Friday, 10 am - 6 pm

Check out our Volunteer Page for other ideas at http://www.northwest-csa.org/volunteer.htm

Call 715-392-5127 (main office) or the Senior Center at 715-394-3644 for more information.
