Baskets brighten many a Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day was made even more special for many moms in South Lake Tahoe thanks to Soroptimist International of Tahoe Sierra. This professional women’s service organization provided 42 Mother’s Day baskets filled with toiletries and small gifts for every mom at Sierra Recovery Center, The Women’s Center and the Young Parents Program at South Tahoe High School. Barbara Gustafson, a member of Soroptimist, spearheaded the event and added her own artistic touch to each basket.

Soroptimist International of Tahoe Sierra’s mission is to “strengthen and enhance youth and women, in all facts of their lives, by providing the tools necessary for them to be contributing human beings.” The baskets are one of the many projects that this club undertakes to support our community.

Other projects include our literacy in the schools project, On Your Way Awards, Baby Think it Over, Women in History, and supporting many other groups that also support our mission. Anyone interested in learning more about this dynamic service group, and anyone interested in receiving information regarding membership call Daphne Forte at (530) 544-4462.
