Leadership Lake Tahoe’s “One Home at a Time” renovation project continues to receive generous community support even though the bulk of the work was completed at the end of October.

With the help of the California Conservation Corps work crews the Leadership team recently made a large contribution of household items to the Barton Attic Thrift Store in order to make room for another donation. This larger donation comes in the form for upscale furniture from the Ridge Tahoe’s penthouse, which is being remodeled. All the furniture is being donated to Leadership’s “One Home at a Time” project that focused on renovating the four residential facilities owned and operated by Sierra Recovery Center.

The CCC work crews have helped the Leadership team load and unload paint, furniture and household items on nearly half a dozen occasions in the past three months.

To date, more than $60,000 in goods and services was donated to “One Home at a Time.”

“We are so fortunate to have had this Leadership group adopt Sierra Recovery Center and provide so much work to our residential facilities,” said Joan Anderson, director of operations. “All their hard work truly improved the living conditions of the homes. And having the residents help with the renovations on those work-weekends gave our clients a really good sense of accomplishment.”

A total of 10 workdays took place from August through October with everyone from Leadership members, treatment residents both present and past, Sierra Recovery Center staff, volunteers from civic organizations and Leadership alumni pitching in to get the work done.

The Ridge Tahoe’s penthouse furniture will be moved with the help of The Ridge Eagles, a service group made up of Ridge Tahoe/Resorts West employees.

The Leadership Lake Tahoe 2005 class graduation ceremony takes place Tuesday at 8 a.m. during the Tahoe Douglas Chamber of Commerce board meeting.
