Kudos & Kindness: We appreciate the help this season

Live Violence Free would like to send a huge holiday appreciation to community members who helped out children and families this Christmas season. Live Violence Free extends deep gratitude for the Tahoe Douglas Rotarians and Sealed with a Kiss who hosted their annual Christmas Rotary Party, warmly welcoming 15 families to join the festivities, including a gourmet dinner and a variety of gifts. This year, 48 of our clients and their family members benefited from this event. Also, Live Violence Free sends extensive thanks the Tahoe Douglas Elks Club No. 2670 for their immense ongoing commitment and volunteerism at Live Violence Free and their generous donation of granting 20 children with Kmart shopping sprees. These children were able to pick anything up to $50 that they desired to take home, making Christmas extra special for children in need. Lastly, Live Violence Free sends blessings and acknowledgement to all of the donors who participated in our 13th annual Adopt-A-Child program. More than 90 children were adopted this year by local residents who profoundly enhanced the Christmas celebration for many families in our community. Thank you to all the service clubs, citizens, and leaders in the community to bring Christmas cheer and light to clients who are facing dark and challenging life circumstances. Live Violence Free is excited for the New Year to come and welcomes all volunteers interested in joining the organization.
