South Lake Tahoe business collecting donations for Northern California wildfire victims
Like many people in Tahoe, Denise and Randy Llewellyn know someone impacted by the wildfires burning in Northern California. Actually, they know quite a few people.
The couple lived in Santa Rosa at one time. Their godson lost his home in the fire, as did 60 other families the Llewellyns know through church.
“The need is great,” said Denise.
The Llewellyns, who own Integrity Locksmith in South Lake Tahoe, are collecting donations to take to the area. They will be delivering their travel trailer, which will serve as their godson’s temporary home, around Oct. 22. They hope to fill the trailer with sorely needed items.
Every single donated item will go to local churches assisting fire victims, according to Denise.
New and gently used items can be dropped off at Integrity Locksmith, located at 2331 Lake Tahoe Blvd., from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The Llewellyns ask that items be placed in their assigned boxes (see factbox for list of needed items).
