will be a blood drive and free tax/retirement planning seminar
on Wednesday, February 27th at Community Blood Services
blood drive will take place from 5 to 8 p.m. at the center at
970 Linwood Avenue West. From 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., Gilman & Ciocia,
Inc., one of the country's largest tax preparation firms located
in Washington Township, will sponsor a seminar in the center's
conference room on how to reduce your taxes while increasing
your retirement income.
speakers Kathy Travis, CPA and Mary Tom, LLC will speak on the
new tax law changes and estate planning. They will discuss how
to reduce or eliminate taxes on Social Security; how to pay
less tax utilizing the 2001 tax law changes; and how to maximize
requirement income with minimal risk.
combined blood drive and seminar were set up to attract blood
donors because the blood supply has again dropped to the dangerously
low level that was experienced before September 11th.
the center has only a two-day supply of blood. Ideally, it should
have a 5-to-7-day blood reserve in order to meet the growing
needs of the hospitals it serves.
wishing to donate and attend the seminar should call 201-251-3703.
Appointments are required.
