Truckee Community Christmas gearing up for holiday season
October 30, 2014
The Truckee Community Christmas nonprofit organization is once again overseeing toy, food and coat drives that provide staples during the holiday to local families and individuals who struggle financially.
Residents who place donated items in collection barrels that are placed throughout the community between Dec. 1-18, and marked with the Truckee Community Christmas square red logo, can be assured that their contribution will directly help a local family in need.
All collected goods are distributed to grateful recipients who have undergone a thorough application and review process.
These individuals include low income families, teen moms and their babies, seniors who are homebound and other deserving area residents.
To help, visit http://www.TruckeeCommunityChristmas.com to make an online donation, or to find out where collection bins are located, how to volunteer and more.
