The program started on Friday and will continue into Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the Louisville Urban League on W Broadway.

It’s also family-friendly.

“We have coloring sheets and activities for kids, we have a popcorn machine, photo booth,” Brittany Sims with the Louisville Asset Building Coalition said. “So bring your whole family down. There is something to do for everyone besides just getting your taxes done.”
