Participate in Giving Tree Program at Lake Tahoe School

Staff report

Lake Tahoe School, in collaboration with Tahoe Family Solutions, is hosting the sixth annual Adopt-A-Family program with a ‘Giving Tree’ full of families’ wishes for the holidays.

TFS has chosen six families who are most at need during the holidays and asked for three wishes from each family member. These wishes are written on ornaments and hung on the Giving Tree in Lake Tahoe School lobby.

Wishes include clothing, shoes, jackets, blankets, pots and pans and other household necessities.

Most of the wishes are fulfilled by Lake Tahoe School parents, but other community members are welcome to choose an ornament, purchase a gift, and return the unwrapped present to the school by Dec. 17.

LTS students then wrap all of the gifts, and TFS distributes them to the families. Over the past five years, more than 240 wishes have been fulfilled through the Giving Tree Program.

For information, contact Leslie Blunden at TFS at 775-298-0204. Lake Tahoe School is located at 995 Tahoe Blvd. in Incline Village.
