After years of doing volunteer tax preparation for the AARP Taxaide program (which I am not giving up!), and seeing that many people struggle at tax time due to monetary decisions they've made throughout the year, I went looking for a volunteer budget counseling program where I could hopefully help families before they get to that stage. I found THRIVE. THRIVE Peninsula's mission is "To Encourage, Educate and Empower our Peninsula neighbors in need toward transformed and self-sustaining lives." In addition to providing emergency funding and food for short term crises, THRIVE requires recipients to engage in one-on-one budget and financial counseling to put them back on the road to self sufficiency. I am excited to be a part of this worthy mission. THRIVE has been chosen as one of the charities to benefit from the One City Marathon. I am going to be running the 8K option on marathon day to support THRIVE's efforts in the community.
