Every child looks forward to having some special gifts during the holidays. However, not every family has the resources to provide gifts. There are many children who would not be celebrating the season without the help of others.

CASA El Dorado and the South Lake Tahoe Women’s Center have partnered again this year with the El Dorado County Library to give the community an opportunity to help a child in need.

Anyone wishing to sponsor a child may choose a paper ornament from the Giving Tree set up in the South Lake Tahoe branch of the El Dorado County Library, 1000 Rufus Allen Blvd. Each ornament has a child’s name, age and his or her wishes for Christmas. Sponsoring a child is as easy as choosing a child, buying gifts from his or her wish list and returning it to the library no later than Dec. 10.

Visit the library and you’ll come away knowing that you have helped a child in need have a merry Christmas this year.
