Would you provide a meal for our volunteer tax preparers?

Meals for income tax volunteers are needed!

We are looking for volunteers to bring in a meal(s) of your choice on one or more of the Monday and Thursday lunches, or Tuesday evening dinners during tax season this year for our hard-working income tax prep volunteers. Many of our volunteers come to NKC right after work and stay well into the evening, so a meal is greatly appreciated.

We are in need of:

Monday/Thursday Lunches

Should feed 8-10 people and should arrive by 11:45 a.m.

Tuesday Evening Dinners

Should feed 8-10 people and should arrive by 4:45 p.m.

Some suggested items are soups, chili, salads or casseroles, but feel free to make anything you like, or bring in a carry-out meal. We will gladly heat up a frozen meal as well. If you prefer to donate a gift card or make a monetary donation, we would be happy to purchase the food on your behalf.
