November marks the season of giving thanks for all our blessings, health, family, and friends. For many this season means looking for ways to give back to our community as we show our gratitude.
Filing your 2017 taxes online through File For A Cause is one easy way to contribute to a local organization. When you file your tax return under FFAC, a portion of the filing fee will be donated to Excentia. Where does your donation go? These monies help individuals find jobs, get job training, learn socialization skills, build social capital, and to live independently or with supports – however they feel most comfortable. Excentia provides developmental services from birth through adulthood…..helping people to life enriched and empowered lives. Their Employment First Program has placed participants in every kind of job from barista to law office reception assistant to arborist.
