The H&R Block offices in Columbus have been collecting stuffed animal donations to help patients at Nationwide Children’s celebrate Easter this weekend. Just as taxpayers should consider their tax situation throughout the year, H&R Block’s associates also recognize charitable organizations need support all year long.

“We not only work in this community, but we live and shop here as well,” said, Mitch Hilderbrand, district manager. “H&R Block is proud to be able to help Nationwide Children’s Hospital with a fuzzy gift for patients this weekend.”
