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.

After Cash in a Flash, we were looking for a great community promotion. We decided to give a $50 discount for donating a 20 pound or larger bag of dog or cat food for the local animal shelters and rescue leagues.

I’ve been associated with Liberty almost from the beginning. In those early years, I saw firsthand John Hewitt’s passion and drive to eradicate hunger. I have to admit that I just didn’t get it.
