Tahoe City PUD employees chip in for the community

TAHOE CITY, Calif. — Employees of the Tahoe City Public Utility District serve the community 365 days a year, providing clean and reliable drinking water, safe and efficient sewer services, and parks and recreation amenities.

But their commitment to the community extends beyond their daily jobs. For the past five years, employees have teamed up with Project MANA to help those in need in our community, particularly during the holidays.

This year, TCPUD employees pooled more than $1,000 of their personal dollars and donated 1,097 pounds of food for Project MANA's November food drive. Project MANA provides more than 27,000 services per year to individuals in need throughout North Tahoe and Truckee communities.

In addition, TCPUD employees and local contractors donated more than $2,000 through Tahoe Lake Elementary School staff to ensure three local families had household staples, winter clothing, and a magical Christmas for their family.

"Our employees never cease to amaze me with how willing they are to personally give back to the community," said Cindy Gustafson, General Manager of the TCPUD. "Helping others is what public service is all about and I am so proud of our team of incredible individuals."
