Fanatical at Liberty

Category: changing communities

We tried this type of project two years ago and it didn't work too well because all we gave away was 1 chicken per family. This year as part of our giving back to our community, we decided that we’d put together complete Christmas meals for 500 families who couldn't afford them.
I became homeless two days after I received notification from Dennis at Liberty Tax that tax classes would began on Dec 15, 2014 and all I could do is cry because I felt tremendous pressure to just give up and try again next year. Especially when the holidays are approaching and I wasn't sure how my son would respond to me telling him we have no where to live now.
John, Our office (entity 6673, office 17363) has impacted the lives of nearly 1300 (and counting) needy families in Muncie (and Delaware county), Indiana as well as many more throughout the state by working with a local 501(c)3 non-profit organization, Action for Animals, Inc., that, as one of its many efforts, operates a pet food pantry from our office.
Like all Liberty Tax Service franchisees we love to give back to our communities. Not everything we do can or is a huge thing. We know that even small efforts are worthwhile. As the time approached for the kids to head back to school we started thinking that we would like to do something to help students whose families were not able to afford to purchase part or all of their school supplies.
There are always tough moments in life in which you may not see any opportunities to help you achieve your dreams. I've always been a dreamer and always knew I wanted to be a Business Woman. While I was attending school I had part time jobs on pretty much any job that came along the way. Even after graduating from High School on 2013 I would work on full time jobs.
I'm not sure if it's too late to write about my story, but I feel compelled to share how incredible it is to be a part of the Liberty Tax Family since 2012. My name is Thomas Montalvo and I'm convinced our presence as a Liberty Tax Service Office here in Southern California is making a huge difference and lives throughout the community are being changed.
We have a homeless man that we call O.G. that comes to our office regularly to help put out signs, flags and our Liberty Tax tent. He is responsible for sweeping and hosing down the front and rear of the office. He comes to the office three to five times per week and he knows most of our employees by first name. We consider him a part of the Liberty family!
Community Incentive We have worked hard over the past tax season in the community we service. In March 2013, we invited the West Hempstead senior art class students to paint a mural of Lady Liberty in our office. We were able to have students, their families and school staff visit. In addition, we donated $1,000.00 to the the school's art program. On November 16th, 2013, our Liberty Tax Serv
Liberty is a great business, but it is also a family. I remember at a convention a few years ago when John Hewitt stated his three most important values: 1) God; 2) Family; and 3) Business. Those values, and their order, resonated with me. I have been an Area Developer since December of 2001 with Liberty Tax.
Early in February, a family came to us to file four years’ worth of tax returns. They were quiet, friendly and humble, and quickly had everyone in the office smiling. They weren’t sure they were even going to get a refund, thanks in part to prior difficulties with an ex-spouse and the IRS. But they were trying to get into a home and needed to file all the back tax returns. Excitedly, the preparer
