Students help collect necessities for holidays

Provided to the Tribune Linda Wysong's math class at South Tahoe Middle School collected the largest number of necessity items to give to NAMI for Christmas.

South Tahoe Middle School and Club Live assisted the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill of South Lake Tahoe by collecting personal necessity items for Christmas.

During the collection, more than 2,500 items were collected by middle school students and distributed to NAMI clients during the holidays.

Club Live coordinated the effort by encouraging classrooms to collect as many items as possible.

The winning class was treated to a hot chocolate and doughnut party. Linda Wysong’s math class collected the most items, and Nancy Muller’s sixth-grade students came in a close second.

More than 25 classes participated in the collection effort.

This was the 11th year that STMS and Club Live have helped NAMI. Over the years, more than 22,000 items have been donated to the clients of NAMI. Club Live would like to thank everyone who contributed in making this project a great success.
