Community Christmas Party for fire survivors

The Community Care Center of Tahoe will hold a Community Christmas Party for the Angora fire survivors from 3 to 7 p.m. Dec. 9 at the center.

The party also will honor those who helped during the fire and with recovery efforts. There will be a Christmas Wish Tree, much like the Angel Tree, where the community can come in and choose a person, persons or family to whom they would like to give Christmas trees, presents or food.

To date, the center has helped more than 135 families and more than 325 Angora fire survivors.

Local musicians and restaurants have joined in donating their services and food. There also will be a special visit from Santa, who will arrive on the Lake Valley Fire Department’s 1940s fire truck.

All surrounding fire agencies, the U.S. Forest Service, law enforcement departments, city/county officials, community organizations and the community at large are all invited to join in this celebration.

For more information or if you would like to help, call Pam Bettencourt at (530) 318-3349.

The center no longer is accepting clothing except for winter clothing, hats, gloves and snow shovels. Still needed are nonperishable food items and furniture in good condition, as well as monetary donations for utilities and other expenses.

All charitable monetary donations are tax-deductible and should be made out to Moose Lodge No. 1632, marked “for The Community Care Center,” and may be brought to the Mikasa building, 2011 Lake Tahoe Blvd., or mailed to the Moose Lodge, 961 Eloise Ave., South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150.
