Volunteering

Throughout the year SITD volunteers in our local community.

    • Soroptimist International has encouraged clubs to sponsor an S Club at a local high school.
    • We sponsor the S Club at Sierra High School.
      • We encourage S Club members to:
        • provide service in their community
        • raise funds for their community
        • support international projects
      • This year we are including a 7 week mentoring program developed by Soroptimist International to guide at risk girls towards meaningful careers.
  • Sierra Teen Education & Parenting Program ( STEPP )
    • Pregnant teens earn points by participating in sound prenatal and postnatal care and can use those points to “purchase” items from the Teen Closet. SITD ensures that this closet is kept stocked with everything from diapers to baby clothes and toys.
  • Career Resource Fair
    • In March our local school district hosts a Career Resource Fair for local high school juniors. In past years SITD has helped with set up, time keeping, scheduling, and managing student traffic.
Community Senior ProgramsTruckee Senior Services
  • Our Club volunteers at various Truckee Senior Services fundraisers:
    • Senior Pancake Breakfasts
      • We take our turn with other local organizations to host quarterly pancake breakfasts to raise funds for our seniors.
      • Proceeds are used to support senior services.
      • We enjoy the camaraderie of cooking, serving food and visiting with friends and neighbors.
    • Senior Spaghetti and Bingo Night
      • We participate with other service clubs in Truckee to create a tremendous spaghetti and bingo night fundraiser for senior services.
Community Programs
  • Truckee Community Christmas truckeecommunitychristmas_icon
    • Each year, as part of the Truckee Community Christmas, we collect, wrap and distribute toys which are donated locally. These Christmas presents are given to needy families in our communities so that they, too, can experience the thrill of Christmas morning.
Environmental Programs
  • Adopt A Highway Adopt A Highway
    • Three or four times a year, members, friends and family join together for an interesting morning picking up trash along our section of I-80.  Often it is followed by a trip to Wild Cherries to regale each other on the treasures removed from the roadside. We share a great sense of accomplishment at once again returning our sponsored section to its naturally beautiful state.
