Find out what the latest is on the Run!
Scott's Run Settlement House is a VITA tax preparation site and it's been busy! We will prepared taxes until April 10th and only have a few appointments left open.
What does this mean for you? If you earned $58,000 or less in 2013 and do not have capital gains or own your own business, you can still use this link to access our free tax preparation tools. If you are interested in doing your taxes on your own but don't have access to a computer with internet access come in and use our computer lab.
Inclement Weather Hours:
Scott's Run Settlement House's inclement weather policy is based on Monongalia County School's delays and closures. When there is a two-hour delay, we will open two hours later; the office will open at 10:30 am as will the food pantry. When school is closed due to weather, SRSH will be closed as well. We extend our apologies for any inconvenience.
Poverty Increasing in Public Schools
Take the time to read this article from The Washington Post and be sure to check out the graphic to see how the growth in poverty is taking over the US. In 2011, 51% of public school children were identified living in poverty; the cost of childhood hunger is high--much higher than solutions to the issue.
You can help make us to help children who face hunger and food insecurity by making a financial contribution to the Backpack Feeding Program. We also welcome donations of food items as well; see this list for guidance when shopping. And, of course, we are always looking for volunteers to help pack, transport and distribute snack bags! Give us a call for more information (304) 599-5020.
