  1. Is there anyone that would be willing to come to our retirement home and assist low income seniors?

    • Hello Susan,

      There are a few tax clinics for seniors taking place on April 2nd, April 9th and April 16th (at other locations). Are your residents about to get to other locations? If not, we can try to send some volunteers to Trinity Village.
