Volunteer of the Month - May 2015

During the income tax season, in partnership with CRA’s Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP), ISC hosts Saturday Income Tax Clinics where volunteers prepare income tax and benefit returns for eligible individuals who have a modest income. This tax season, ISC’s team of 12 volunteers contributed over 200 volunteers’ hours in assisting over 150 clients with filing their income taxes.

Volunteer_mayGrace Park, who is an integral part of our Income Tax volunteer team, is ISC’s volunteer of the month!

“My name is Grace Park. I immigrated to Canada when I was in elementary school from South Korea with my family. Currently, I am studying accounting at University of Calgary. I was looking for an opportunity to use my accounting background and my experiences as an immigrant in a meaningful way and I came across with Immigrant Services Calgary. When I found out about the income tax program at ISC, I knew I had found a perfect fit! During my time volunteering, I had the opportunity to act as a receptionist as well as an income tax volunteer to serve many people with diverse backgrounds. My favorite part of being involved in the program was the opportunity to support the community and meet other volunteers who share the same passion”.

 

Congratulations Grace and the entire income tax team for another successful tax season!
