Tahoe – Truckee Chase International dontates to Project MANA, Toys for Tots
December 18, 2008
Chase International agents continue to spread holiday cheer as they take part in an array of local charity programs. With eight offices in the Lake Tahoe and Reno area, Chase International is reaching out to children, seniors and families in need.
Agents at the Incline Village office will assist with the local Toys for Tots as well as the Parasol Foundation’s Holiday Senior Giving Program. Agents and staff throughout the office will act as “angels” to Incline seniors, who have made individual requests for special holiday needs and necessities. In addition to granting wishes, Chase will also provide a meal for each senior and supplemental gifts.
“There are a number of seniors in need in Incline Village, and we’re hoping to assist as many as possible,” said Chase agent Sandi Solomonson, who is the liaison for the program.
The Incline Village Chase International office also assisted with the Boy Scouts of America “Scouting for Food” Drive in conjunction with Project MANA in early November. More than 1,600 pounds of food was collected.
Chase International’s Tahoe City and Squaw Valley offices are also collecting food for Project MANA, a hunger-relief organization serving the north and west shores of Lake Tahoe and Truckee. Project MANA serves an average of 300 meals a day.
“We tend to think of those less fortunate as being an issue that’s urban and therefore far removed from our lives, however we have a very real, growing need here at the lake,” Donna Caravelli, of the Tahoe City office, said.
