Grant Supports Equipment, Materials for Volunteers to Continue Free Initiative for Boonville Residents
BOONVILLE — Recent support from the Kenneth V. and Jeannette Remp Sawyer Community Fund of the Northern New York Community Foundation will help the Village of Boonville continue its Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.
A $2,200 grant will enable the purchase of equipment and materials for volunteers to continue the program in collaboration with the village. For several years, the Village of Boonville has offered the VITA program free to residents with basic income-tax filing needs. Certified volunteers offer their time and expertise to help citizens complete the annual filings. Program volunteers completed between 250 and 300 returns last year.
