Tax season is over, and AARP Tax-Aide in Utah did another outstanding job helping low-to-moderate income taxpayers in the state file their taxes at no charge and on time! This year, over 6700 returns were completed at 32 sites around the state by 106 volunteer preparers.
Did you know that in Utah, one in seven people are at risk of missing a meal today, and one is six seniors in the state faces hunger? Yet sixty percent of seniors eligible for food stamps are not receiving benefits. This may be because many who are hungry do not have information about where to go for help, how to apply for benefits, or what they need to do to receive assistance.
Caregiving may be one of the most important roles a person takes on in his or her life, whether it is a sudden role or one that develops over time. Having resources to start to plan for this role, helping to coordinate a big move, or contemplating having a loved one move in will make the process much easier.
Start your engines race fans! Do you want to have a fun night out and help a great cause at the same time? AARP is proud to fuel and support the Utah Food Bank in its race to end hunger on Saturday, June 27 for its 19th birthday bash. Just bring five cans of food to the Raceways and you'll get free admission!
