2nd annual Incline Community Toy Drive under way
The North Lake Tahoe Chamber and Incline Community Business Association will host the 27th annual Holiday Mixer on Friday, Dec. 5, from 5-7:30 p.m. at the Village Shopping Center in Incline Village.
Activities at the event will include kids Christmas tree painting, children’s holiday crafts, a special guest appearance from Santa Claus, sleigh rides and a tree-lighting ceremony.
This is a family-friendly event, and it will also serve as a unofficial kick-off to the second-annual Incline Community Toy Drive, which benefits Tahoe Family Solutions. Everyone is encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy for the drive at the mixer.
Further, barrels for the toy drive are located at the following Incline Village businesses: Village Ace Hardware, Crosby’s, Susie Scoops & Village Toys, Hacienda, Big Water Grille, Sierra Nevada Properties, Chase International Real Estate, Sierra Verde Home Design Center, Village Market, Bar Bar Bar, and Postal Express.
Residents can donate a new, unwrapped toy at any of these barrel locations.
The Incline Community Business Association will also host a fundraiser toy drive event at the Hacienda de la Sierra restaurant on Thursday, Dec. 11, from 6-9 p.m. The community is encouraged to attend.
The second annual Incline Community Toy Drive began last Friday, and goes through Dec. 15.
