Local businesses raise funds for disaster relief

A group of local businesses who care about providing disaster relief to New York and Washington D.C. by donating proceeds from their sales to the Red Cross are spearheading efforts at the South Shore.

“We created this group in an effort to unify at Tahoe to make an immediate difference in the lives of people who need our help now,” said Jana Ney Walker, owner of Sealed With A Kiss and Lakefront Wedding Chapel.

“It is an opportunity for people who want to help but may not know exactly how. Our goal is to raise $20,000 by Sept. 19 to go to the Red Cross.”

Help is needed in getting the word out to other businesses as well as individuals. They may participate by agreeing to donate 50 percent of sales proceeds Sept. 14, 15 or 16 or by making at $300 donation. More would be appreciated and any amount would be accepted. Make checks payable to American Red Cross and deliver to Sealed With A Kiss at Factory Stores at the “Y.” For more information call (530) 541-7925.

Businesses that have already agreed to participate include Sealed With A Kiss at Factory Stores, Lakefront Wedding Chapel, Fragrance Outlet at Factory Stores, Alpina Cafe on Emerald Bay Road, Cutting Edge Sports, Video Maniacs II, Sun Sations, Alpen Sierra, Snow Flake Drive In and Office Depot.
