Ho! Ho! Ho! be a Truckee Holiday Wish Box elf

Put a smile on an elder's face by contributing to the annual Holiday Wish Box, an event celebrating the season and our seniors.

TRUCKEE, Calif. — The Holiday Wish Box needs your support. This is a wonderful holiday party for area seniors, complete with luncheon, a visit from Santa, holiday performances by local children, and presents! The Truckee Donner Senior Apartment residents will make wishes of $25. To grant one of their wishes, please call organizer “Clarence-AS2” at 530-587-5152 or e-mail xmas.wish@hotmail.com. Matching will start on Oct. 15, to be delivered to Clarence at the TD Senior Apartment complex by Dec. 5. They will be distributed on Saturday, Dec. 14. Let’s make it a wonderful holiday season for one and all. The Holiday Wish box is not connected with the Meals on Wheels or any Sierra Senior Services programs. Clarence-AS2 needs many more elves this year! Merchants are encouraged to help fill “goody bags” with product — contact Robin with the Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe Community Footprints program at robin.penning@ritzcarlton.com or 530-562-3018.
