Zoila’s Volunteer Story

Zoila-volunteerWhen I first came to Concord I went to organizations like Monument Impact for help with my taxes and so that my kids could participate in fun activities. They helped my family and I so much but I noticed that most of them were understaffed.

I thought the right thing to do would be to participate in giving back to community that has helped my family so much. When I look at the people who we help at the health fair and with their taxes I see myself 10 years ago. I was in the same situation as many of these people and just like how people helped me when I needed it, I want to do the same.

I heard about the organization but I never really participated as a volunteer. Now I help out a lot with the VITA program and many other projects. Monument Impact has allowed me to give back to the community in ways I never thought I could.
