Planning Agency taking holiday donations

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency is partnering with Christmas Cheer All Year and St. Theresa’s Catholic Church to collect donations for local families in need this holiday season.

“We are concerned that so many local families are struggling right now,” said Joanne Marchetta, Executive Director for TRPA. “We want to help make sure that no local child goes without warm clothes and that families don’t go hungry this holiday season.”

TRPA has collection bins in their front lobby at 128 Market St. on Kingsbury Grade. Lobby staff members are accepting donations of new unwrapped toys, non-perishable food, warm coats and clothes for children and adults, and checks made out to St. Theresa’s Church until Dec. 16.

Christmas Cheer and Saint Theresa’s have combined forces to reach out to the community and can be contacted directly for more information. Christmas Cheer’s phone number is 530-542-4934 and Saint Theresa’s is 530-544-3533.

The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency cooperatively leads the effort to preserve, restore, and enhance the unique natural and human environment of the Lake Tahoe Region now and in the future. For additional information, call Kristi Boosman at 775-589-5230 or send an email to
