(Ft. Indiantown Gap) -- Central Pennsylvanians can help military families in need this tax season by donating all or part of their state income tax refunds.
State Adjutant General Wesley Craig says the Military Family Relief Assistance Program provides grants of up to $3,500 to service members and their families. "It could be due to a disability, medical problems, or even problems involving emergencies at home, a roof or appliance, that, due to a service member's deployment or call to active duty, has placed the family in distress."
The program awarded 32 grants totaling nearly $100,000 last year.
People can check off a designated box on their state income tax return to donate.
Taxes must be filed by April 15th.
