Truckee Community Christmas

photo 2It’s that time of year again. The time when the Truckee community warms our hearts by coming together to help others who need our help. Yep, it’s time for the Truckee Community Christmas. I’ve been the food coordinator for this program for the past eight years and remain astounded by the generosity of those who give of their time and money to the effort. We live in a wonderful town.

Truckee Community Christmas is an all-volunteer organization that last year helped 215 families, 25 teen moms, and over 100 seniors.The Community Christmas is actually a combination food drive, toy drive, coat drive and fundraising organization. Maybe you have seen the Truckee Community Christmas food and toy barrels around town or been approached by a friendly volunteer at Save Mart or Safeway and wondered what’s this all about. It’s about people donating what other people in our town need.

You want to help: You can donate food and toys at any of a number of local locations. Go to http://www.truckeecommunitychristmas.com for recommendations on what is most needed and where to donate. One suggestion is La Galleria on Commercial Row, which will give you a 15% discount off one item after you bring in a bag of food. You can also donate clean, lightly used coats at the Church of the Mountains on Church Street in Truckee. Or can make tax-deductible contributions to Truckee Community Christmas which will use the money to help seniors and to fill the gaps in donations.

In whatever way you can help, it will be appreciated. Be sure and go to http://www.truckeecommunitychristmas.com for all the information you will need, including the fast approaching cut off dates for donations.
