STAR Donates Easter Baskets for Kids

(Spring, 2011 – South Lake Tahoe, CA)
The Community Service Committee for the South Tahoe Association of REALTORS® held a fundraising drive to raise money for Easter baskets for kids that might otherwise not received anything on Easter Sunday.  This year, volunteers were able to purchase 60 baskets with the money raised from within the local membership.  These were divided between the South Lake Tahoe Women’s Center and the Family Resource Center.

“While we receive such an outpouring of support from the service clubs and businesses in our community, this is a holiday that is often overlooked.  It’s a very thoughtful gift that is so appreciated by us, and especially the child who receives that Easter basket,” says South Lake Tahoe Women’s Center Executive Director Leanne Wagoner.

Current STAR Vice President, Ken Daley, put forth a challenge to his fellow association members to meet or beat his own personal pledge.  All in good fun, his gesture spurred some good natured competition among the membership.  STAR was also delighted and appreciative of the Women of the Moose, Chapter 408 for their generous donation, and the many others who gave, enabling the association to give back to the community.

Co-Chairs for the committee Angel Chandler and Jaime Souers expressed how much they enjoy this project.  “It’s not a big project, but the payoff is huge in making these children smile,” says Chandler.  Jaime Souers expressed, “we hope to continue to do this year after year.”
