‘Tis the season to help a family

Provided to the Tribune

The South Lake Tahoe Family Resource Center is seeking donations from the community to help brighten the holidays of those who are less fortunate. Anyone who is interested in making a difference and helping families celebrate Christmas is asked to support one of the following opportunities:

1. Christmas dinner: Through generous support from the local Albertsons and Safeway stores, the Family Resource Center purchases dinners for families in need for about $45 per family.

2. The Gift Basket Program: The Family Resource Center will purchase a laundry basket full of household necessities such as laundry detergent, shampoo, soap, toothpaste and bathroom tissue.

3. Family adoption: Help put presents under the tree for a family. You can adopt a family of any size and provide Christmas presents for their children. Families eligible for this program are generally large or single-parent with children under 14. We will provide information on the gender, age, and gift suggestions. Gifts should preferably be wrapped and delivered to the Family Resource Center by Dec. 20.

Assistance to any of these programs may be made through a monetary donation or by purchasing items for the baskets or toys for children. For more information call the Family Resource Center at (530) 542-0740.
