On Assignment: Baltimore CASH Campaign

The Baltimore CASH (Creating Assets, Savings and Hope) Campaign kicked off the 2011 tax season this week with a press conference that included several distinguished guests, including the Baltimore’s Mayor (Stephanie Rawlings-Blake) and two congressmen (Elijah Cummings – MD 7th Congressional District and John Sarbanes – MD 3rd Congressional District).

The Baltimore CASH Campaign is a non-profit organization and its mission is to promote and provide products and services that increase financial stability opportunities for low-income Baltimore-area families. This year they have 17 tax sites throughout Baltimore to prepare your taxes for free (if you qualify). The non-profit also added another layer to its free benefits for Baltimore families this season by offering assistance in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA) form.
