We Need Volunteers!
Looking for a different kind of volunteer work? Interested in helping your community? Consider volunteering to help low- to moderate-income families and individuals file their income taxes for the 2013 tax season.
The Fremont Family Resource CenterÕs (FRC) Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is recruiting volunteers for the 2013 tax season. FRC VITA prepares income tax returns and e-files them for low- to moderate-income individuals at no cost. In many cases, tax refunds are their lifeline. Not only does the VITA Program provide tax preparation services, VITA volunteers also connect families to important services such as CalFresh benefits, financial coaching, asset building programs, financial education workshops, and referrals to other valuable programs available at the FRC.
If you are interested in becoming a VITA volunteer, please attend the VITA Volunteer Information Meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 12 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Caribbean Conference Room located at the Fremont Family Resource Center, 39155 Liberty Street Ð Building EFGH in Fremont.
For more information, please contact VITA Coordinator Carolyn Robertson at (510) 574-2020 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

FoCus, fOCus, FOCUS!
At this yearÕs ÒEducational Paint Out,Ó celebrate 20 years of art and conservation of the FOCUS group and explore your connection to the environment in creative and conscientious ways. Participate in a canvas mural project as well as individual art projects. Art activities will encourage kids to bring their individual creative sensibilities and unique experiences to a group collaboration highlighting environmental themes and issues. FOCUS is a nationwide campaign in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the Wyland Foundation, which uses the beauty of art and the wonder of science to make kids aware of the shared relationship between the health of each ecosystem and the health of the planet. Artwork from this event will be showcased at the Olive Hyde Gallery from Dec. 13 to 15. The event will take place Nov. 17 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Fremont Community Center.
Check out our Recreation Guide for more art classes or visit us online at www.RegeRec.com. For more information contact the CityÕs Irene Jordahl at email@example.com or (510) 494-4322.
