The AARP Foundation Tax-Aide program is in full swing here at the BMAC offices.

Two tax advisors are here weekly on Mondays and Tuesdays, seeing up to 16 people daily. Clients only need to make an appointment and bring their paperwork. Tax advisors will submit all information online and file for the client.

This service is completely free of charge. People who make an appointment generally see their taxes complete within the hour. Volunteer advisors will see clients until April 17th. Call BMAC to schedule your appointment today, 509-529-4980.

Veterans and shelter pets find companionship in one another through the Pet’s for Patriot’s program.

The national program has been adopted locally thanks to a partnership between the BMAC AmeriCorps team and the Blue Mountain Humane Society.

Pet’s for Patriots has a mission to “Give the gifts of fidelity, joy and love to both veteran and pet through companion animal adoption”.

Through the program, Blue Mountain Humane Society is offering veterans a 50% discounted rate on adoptions as well as other benefits.

If you are or know a veteran who could benefit, learn by contacting The Humane Society.


February 14th was Dutch Bro's Coffee's National "Dutch Love Day", an annual event of corporate giving. This year nearly 300 Dutch Bro's locations across the U.S. donated $1 of every drink sold to local food banks. Both the locally owned Walla Walla and Milton Freewater locations participated. Owner, Emily Beamer, chose BMAC's Food Bank as this year’s recipient.

Despite the early morning snow, the Dutch Bro’s team braved the cold day and served up piping hot coffee with smiles on their faces.

Orchestra Rocks

The Walla Walla Symphony’s annual concert & “foodraiser” explores how music is played through interactive demonstration led by local musicians. This free family event just asked that attendees brought a non-perishable food item for admission. Our community really turned out and this year’s event ended with 887 lbs of food donated to the BMAC food bank!

Chamber WWU Large

Walla Walla University was the winner of the ‘table decorating contest’ at the annual Chamber Banquet. Instead of taking their winnings, they donated it to our Energy Assistance program. We are so grateful that this community understands the value and impact of paying it forward. Thank you to the Walla Walla Valley Chamber of Commerce for hosting a great event and to Walla Walla University for their creativity and generosity!
