Tax preparer hosts annual community day

As the hectic tax season gears up one Vicksburg tax preparer is giving back to the community.

Families took part in the annual H & R Block Community Day held in the Rite Aid parking lot Saturday.

Each year the tax agency chooses one non-profit organization to support.

This year money raised will benefit the River City Rescue Mission.

It provides charitable services to the less fortunate in the Vicksburg area.

There was bright sunshine and great weather for the tractor show, kids games and other activities.

There were also demonstrations by local police and fire departments.

"We work with non-profits all through the year. If somebody contacts us we'd be glad to work with them...We hope that others will follow us because if everybody did this say once a month, just think what we could do for our neighborhoods," said H&R Block franchise owner Theresa Lorenz.

Sponsors also held a bake sale and raffled off a television and bicycle to raise funds for the River City Rescue Mission.
