McCall donates to Tahoe Youth & Family Services

McCall Realty launched a campaign in 2010 to raise funds for five South Lake Tahoe non-profit organizations, with the promise to share $20,000 among them. Owner Thane McCall has followed through with his promise, distributing final contributions this month to each of the non-profits including Tahoe Youth & Family Services.

“Organizations like Tahoe Youth & Family Services enrich lives daily in ways many folks can’t even imagine,” McCall said. “Counselors and prevention services give kids a chance to be kids, taking away the negative influences they might run into on the street by helping them focus energy in a positive direction through partnerships with other organizations in town that offer after-school programs and activities.”

Celebrating 40 years in South Lake Tahoe, TYFS offers families a wide range of professional services including counseling, community outreach, mentor programs, an emergency youth shelter, 24-hour crisis line, drug and alcohol prevention, drop in centers and Project Safe Place. Offices located in South Lake Tahoe and Gardnerville utilize funds provided by generous donors such as McCall for growth of programs benefitting younger children.

“Through the help of donations like this one from McCall, we’re able to continue growing these much-needed services and programs,” said Alissa Nourse, Executive Director of Tahoe Youth & Family Services. “In October, our mentor program grew substantially. We’re looking forward to growing services for younger children in 2011.”

McCall Realty instituted a program last year to spread $20,000 among five area youth-based non-profit organizations. Other donation recipients in addition to Tahoe Youth & Family Services include South Lake Tahoe Police Activities League, South Lake Tahoe Women’s Center, Boys & Girls Club of South Lake Tahoe and Court Appointed Special Advocates of El Dorado County.
