The Nevada County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue team is holding its annual winter fundaiser in Truckee on Saturday, Feb. 14, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Safeway Center, SaveMart Center and Boreal Ski Area.

Donations are used to purchase and maintain team equipment. Team members are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and they deploy in all weather conditions and all types of terrain to search for missing and stranded persons. Residents can come meet the all-volunteer team (both human and K9). All donations are tax deductible.
