Local United Way Getting Help from AmeriCorps

Posted: Updated:

Over the next year, the northern Nevada office of The United Way is once again getting some help from a national organization.

AmeriCorps has sent four volunteers to northern Nevada to help The United Way with two of its programs.

Two of the volunteers will help low-income families learn how to take advantage of tax credits and help with financial literacy workshops. The other two hope to help improve grade school reading levels here in northern Nevada.

"United Way just cannot have this number of extra staff working on projects like this, so it's absolutely critical," Kelsey Piechocki, the Senior Vice President of The United Way of northern Nevada and the Sierra told us Tuesday.

This is the third year the local United Way branch has partnered with AmeriCorps.
