Hattiesburg Mayor's Financial Education Initiative looking for volunteers

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The City of Hattiesburg is searching for volunteers for the Mayor's Financial Education Initiative.

The initiative needs volunteers with tax preparation experience to help out the senior population and low-to-moderate income earners with their 2017 taxes. Volunteers should be comfortable computers and ideally have tax return preparation experience, though the latter is not required.

Training sessions will be held in December and January.

Interested volunteers can contact Maxine Coleman at 601-554-1005 or email mcoleman@hattiesburgms.com.
