Stateline, NV – Tahoe Regional Planning Agency staff dug into their wallets and scoured shopping and grocery stores continuing the tradition of bringing a little cheer to local children and families in need over the holidays.

This year staff provided gifts of clothes and toys to 35 foster children ages 4 – 17 through Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA).

“TRPA staff was very enthusiastic about helping local foster kids with so little. These children have no families, no toys, and our staff jumped at the opportunity to help,” said Gary Weigel, TRPA’s lead front counter planner. “Even customers coming in for permits got into the holiday spirit and sponsored children this year,” he said.
