AKRON: H&R Block will host an event to raise money to help homeless cats and dogs through a local pet rescue agency.
The tax preparation company, in conjunction with Paws and Prayers Animal Rescue, is sponsoring ''Give Charity a Second Look,'' from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the H&R Block office, 1904 Buchholzer Blvd.
Information will be available about the rescue group, and free tax advice will be offered at the same time.
H&R Block will provide $25 to Paws and Prayers for each new eligible client who completes tax preparation at any participating H&R Block retail office. Participants must provide a referral flier obtained at the kickoff event or by contacting Paws and Prayers at 330-475-8300 or by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2009, almost 1,000 charitable organizations nationwide benefited through the company's Non-Profit Referral Program, said Brittany Jones, community relations coordinator.
