Truckee Community Christmas 2016   Leave a comment

Every Christmas season for over 25 years, the non-profit Truckee Community Christmas has brought a shining light of joy to hundreds of families in the Truckee area. Last year about 350 families were aided by the non-profit program which provides food, clothing and toys to those who have been identified as truly needy residents of the area. Each family receives a wrapped toy for each child, a large box of food stables, a grocery store gift card, books and warm coats.

“I have been the food coordinator for the past nine years and know this program makes a big difference in people’s lives,” said Lynn Richardson.  “Program families must apply and be accepted and so we know who these families are. I have met some wonderful people in Truckee who are part of my volunteer team and I couldn’t do all the organizing without them.  It’s a crazy time of year to juggle this commitment, but it’s so worthwhile and you know you are helping others less fortunate in Truckee,” said Richardson.

Would you like to be a part of this effort?

An army of volunteers is currently collecting food, toys and warm coats.

Food Drive – Barrels are in schools and local businesses in town and at Save Mart and Safeway.  Please consider buying extra food in the market and dropping it in the barrel, or contact Lynn Richardson, food coordinator, to volunteer.  Her email is lynn.richardson@camoves.com.

Toy Drive – New and unwrapped toys are collected and then wrapped. Barrels have been placed to collect the toys throughout town. If you would like to volunteer please contact Lynette Powell. Her email is lynette.powell@sbcglobal.net

Coat Drive – Coats are being collected at various locations in town and at the Church of the Mountains in Downtown Truckee.

Monetary Contributions: You can log onto TruckeeCommunityChristmas.com and make an electronic donation via PayPal. Or mail contributions to Truckee Community Christmas, Inc. P.O. Box 2955, Truckee, CA 96160. All donations are tax-deductible.

The collection of food, toys and coats must end by December 14, so the goods can be delivered before Christmas, so now is the time to make your contribution.

The best 14-19 year old cross-country skiers in the country are coming into town March 8-14 to compete in the 2015 XC Junior Nationals at Auburn Ski Club. These racers first had to face a winter of stiff competition to qualify. Now at Junior Nationals, the best of the best may someday qualify for the Winter Olympics.

For those involved in the big family that is the Truckee-Tahoe nordic community we are stoked to see a crop of local athletes that we have known since they were little tykes have their opportunity to shine. The races will be fast paced and grueling, taking on the steep ups and downs of the Auburn Ski Club terrain.

Lynn Richardson, first volunteered for the Junior Nationals in 2000, when her kids were 4, and after being thrilled by the speed of the athletes, hoped her twins would become racers some day. By the time they were 9, and the next JN’s were here, they had already begun racing. Her daughter Skyler raced in two Junior National Races during her high school career. “I was so happy being at every race and cheering for them,” she says.

I coach 5th graders and direct the Strider Glider program at Tahoe Cross-Country Ski Area in Tahoe City. I remember some of this year’s JN competitors well: a shy Quinn Lehmkuhl in 3rd grade with a big smile on her face as she kept up with, and often passed, all the boys in her class. Or JC Schoonmaker who determinedly moved from the middle of a great pack of kids in 5th grade to the top of the heap just a few years later. And then there was Brandon Herhusky, who it seems would grow another foot taller every time you saw him.

They are an amazing group of athletes that have worked hard to become great uphill skiers in a community composed mostly of downhill skiers. We should all be proud of them.
