December 21, 2021 (TRUCKEE, CA) Soroptimist International of Truckee Donner (SITD) collected, organized and distributed over 1000 toys to approximately 200 families as part of Community Christmas.

Dozens of donation bins were placed all over town to collect toys. Northstar donated 30 new sleds, Community Christmas, the Ian Casey Foundation and SITD donated thousands of dollars, which was used to buy high quality toys - skateboards, scooters, Alexa Echos, art kits, family games, baby toys, winter hats and gloves. Toys for Tots from North Lake Tahoe gave magic kits and games. And the Airport District generously loaned us a hanger for toy storage and the Truckee Recreation District lent us a room for distribution.

Soroptimist President, Lisa Saqui, enthusiastically commented, “The generosity of the Truckee community is inspiring this holiday season. Everyone wanted to make sure that all our children have toys, warm coats and enough food. We were pleased to continue participating in Community Christmas and the toy drive this year as we have done for the past many years.
