Decorated fire truck will begin rounds tonight

Provided to the TribuneDecorated trucks from the South Lake Tahoe Fire Department will visit the city's neighborhoods nightly through Dec. 21. All city fire stations are also collecting new and like-new toys for Christmas Cheer.

It’s that holiday time of year and the South Lake Tahoe Fire Department is encouraging the community to think of the less fortunate members of our community.

All city fire stations are now accepting donations of new or like-new toys for the Christmas Cheer barrels. All donations will be forwarded to needy households this holiday season.

Visitors can also stop by Santa’s House at Fire Station 2 across from South Tahoe Middle School Dec. 13 to 21 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
