Sunshine Letter | Thank you for the ‘Gift of Sight’

TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — The Gogain Group has donated more than 400 pair of glasses to the Truckee Lions Club who, in turn, will send them to “One Sight.” The glasses will then begin a journey where they will be repaired, cleaned, categorized and distributed to needy people across the globe. And every one of those glasses started the process right here in the Truckee-North Lake Tahoe communities.

Residents and visitors made this journey possible with their generous donations of used eyewear. We would like to thank our community for its fantastic support of the 2013 Sight Night drive. Special thanks go out to those who helped us in this worthwhile, “feel good” effort: Dickson Realty, Tahoe Donner Homeowners Association, Alice’s Squaw Valley Market, the King’s Beach Placer County Library and, particularly, to the Sierra Sun for their tremendous support, exposure and encouragement. Thank You.
