Haunted house is again seeking a home

Provided to the Tribune

Every year at Halloween, Christmas Cheer emergency food pantry is the recipient of the fundraiser known as the Haunted House. Many volunteers contribute time and effort to this event and many local families enjoy the “frightful” experience. All the Tahoe community benefits from a Halloween episode, and from the cash proceeds that are given to the food pantry in order to purchase more food for those in need.

This year, despite the willingness of the workers, the event is in jeopardy for the lack of a suitable building. Previous locations have not been satisfactory. Christmas Cheer is once again asking the community for help. We need a building that is empty and available, large enough to accommodate the Haunted House. The set-up is complicated and requires about six weeks for preparation. We need a donation of the use of a building from about Sept. 15 through Halloween week and one week afterward for clean-up, ending about Nov. 7.

There are many large, empty buildings at Tahoe. Is there someone willing to lend us use of a building for that time? Is there someone able to step up to help Tahoe and hungry children?

Call Christmas Cheer at (530) 542-4934.
