AARP Foundation Tax-Aide Volunteers: A Love Story

Helping others at tax time can be romantic!

On a Friday afternoon in February, AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteer Jody Hollander approached his office coordinator in Twin Falls, Idaho. "He usually works from 2 to 7 p.m., and he asked me if he could leave at 5 p.m. that day. Of course I told him it was OK," said Fred Ripley, who told us the story. "I then found out that he had just gotten married that afternoon and was going on a three-day honeymoon. When I asked him why he didn't just take his whole shift off, Jody said he had made a commitment to Tax-Aide and he knew how busy we are this time of year," Fred said.
