Project Santa Claus seeks winter clothing

by Rosemarie Middendorf

Everyone likes to see “the sparkle in a child’s eye,” and just a small gift like a used warm coat, sweater, jacket, sweat suit, boots, shoes, gloves and scarves can surely do the trick. Donations are being requested by Project Santa Claus for warm winter clothing (in good condition only) in all sizes for children and adults to share with those in need.

Project Santa Claus is making clothing bins available in Carson Valley. According to Nancy Deyo, clothing chairman, bins are being put in place at Sunridge Model Homes, 971 Parkway Court, and Winhaven Sales Office, 1655 Lucerne, both in Minden, and Raley’s Supermarket’s and Drug Center, R & T Cleaners, 1389 Lampe Drive, and Carson Valley Medical Center, 1107 Highway 395, all in Gardnerville.

Gardnerville/Carson Valley Kiwanis Club is collecting bikes, wagons, scooters and tricycles in good condition for Project Santa Claus distribution.

Angel Trees will be displayed in various locations in the Valley. You are requested to select an “angel” from a tree. A child’s first name, age, gender, size, family number and a request for a gift of clothing or a toy will be on each angel. (Each child will have two angels on the tree.)

Purchase the requested gift, wrap it as a Christmas gift, attach the angel to the gift with all information visible. Then, take the gift back to the location from which you selected the angel. You may choose as many angels as you like.

All clothing, wheeled items and angel gifts will be disbursed from the Douglas County fairgrounds by dedicated volunteers to qualified families just before Christmas.
