Tahoe Youth & Family Services is offering an alternative gift-giving idea.
What if you could save gas, wrapping paper, gift boxes, gift tags and your valuable time this holiday season? Now you can.
TYFS is offering the “gift that gives twice.” This season, show everyone on your holiday list how much you care – give a gift in their honor to Tahoe Youth & Family Services. TYFS will send them a Christmas card noting the donation you have made in their name.
Include names and addresses, and TYFS will do the rest, including postage. At this point, you can expect a 24-hour turnaround time. Cards are a minimum of a $15 donation but are not limited to that amount.
For more information and to arrange a donation, contact Julie at Tahoe Youth & Family Services at (530) 541-2446, ext. 104, or (775) 4202, ext. 104, or e-mail email@example.com.
