The Town of High River sadly announced that Dot Sanders, a dedicated Income Tax Volunteer has passed away just a short time ago.

Sanders was a vital part of the community, volunteering for the Family and Community Support Service (FCSS) with the Volunteer Income Tax program for the last 10 years. 

Even while she was recovering from a heart attack, the Town of High River stated that she was one of the most reliable volunteers they had. Sanders helped with over 1,500 income tax returns over the past decade. With that, she helped the community receive supplement payments that were key in helping people afford their basic needs.

"We also want to thank her husband Gord for helping bring Dot to and from our office and for all the laughs we had over the last couple of years. We will miss her positivity, joyful smile, expertise and enthusiasm every tax season," the Town of High River said.
