The employees of the Tahoe City Public Utility District serve the community 365 days a year, providing safe 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 three years, the employees have teamed up with Project MANA and Tahoe Lake Elementary School to help those in need in our community.

This year, employees pooled their personal funds and resources and donated seven full dolly loads of food for Project MANA’s November food drive. Project MANA provides more than 27,000 services per year to individuals in North Tahoe and Truckee communities.

District employees also gave over $1,000 in clothes, accessories and other gifts through Tahoe Lake Elementary School staff to ensure two families in need were able to provide a magical holiday for their family.

The holiday gift effort yielded much needed shirts, jeans, sweaters, winter jackets, gloves, bicycles, helmets, toys and more.

“Our employees are phenomenal in their dedication and commitment to this community and how quickly they are willing to personally give back,” said Cindy Gustafson, General Manager of the TCPUD. “Helping others is what public service is all about and I am so proud to get to work with these incredible individuals.”

The TCPUD wishes everyone a happy holiday season and safe and prosperous new year.
