With one week left to go, AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers are busier than ever – helping thousands of Bay State residents with their tax returns and questions. As part of our ongoing spotlight series, we headed to Brockton Council on Aging. Here we met site coordinator Dean Strack and his team of volunteers. Dean hustled and bustled clients in quickly and smoothly, all while keeping a smile on their faces and tax-time stress levels at a minimum. Though many were a bit ‘camera-shy’, we talked to several clients, who expressed their appreciation for all AARP Foundation Tax-Aide does to help them year in and year out.
Our thanks to Dean Steak, Gloria, and all the other volunteers who are making a difference in Brockton. Visit the AARP MA YouTube channel to see all our videos with these and other volunteers and members in the Bay State.
