On Saturday, April 30th, Associated Ministries will be partnering with Rebuilding Together South Sound during Neighborhood Makeover Week. During the day on Saturday, volunteers will be helping homeowners in the Lincoln District of Tacoma with projects to help repair and beautify their homes. Associated Ministries will be helping provide food to the wonderful volunteers as well as hosting a resource fair for other organizations to share their programs and services with the residents and volunteers. The resource fair will be from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm; for more information about having your organization represented, please contact Wendy Morris at email@example.com.
For more information on Neighborhood Makeover Week or to volunteer, please visit their website at http://www.tacomamakeoverweek.org/.

Volunteers. Associated Ministries is grateful for the thousands of hours that our volunteer each year to help with programs such as Paint Tacoma-Pierce Beautiful, Volunteer Income Tax Assistance and Pierce County Hunger Walk to name just a few. Through their dedication to strengthening our community and giving of their time and talents, we have been able to paint nearly 2,200 homes of low-income homeowners, help thousands of people file their taxes, and for 35 years help organize and run an event to raise money for hunger relief.

Volunteers. They are an invaluable part of what we do and we appreciate each and every one who has been able to give of their time, whether for an hour or 600 hours during a year. Their passion and willingness to join us to unite people of faith and goodwill in the effort to make life better and perhaps easier for those in need, is a cherished gift.
Volunteers. We could not do what we do without them and we say thank you!
One of our partners with the VITA program, AARP, is hosting a special tax event that needs volunteers with a very specific skills set: those who speak American Sign Language. This event is an outreach event for deaf and hard of hearing taxpayers. If you know anyone who could help, please put them in touch with me at AmyA@associatedministries.org.
Please note that they would not need to serve the entire day. These individuals would need to pass a short Volunteer Standards of Conduct test, but it is not difficult (related to the ethics of working with taxes, such as protecting taxpayer confidentiality). They would be doing ASL interpretation for the tax preparers, so they do not need to have any tax background.
