COVID-19 left many people who work in restaurants and bars of Tahoe vulnerable, and the Caldor Fire has magnified their challenges significantly. Tahoe’s food and beverage industry workforce needs your help to make it through these disasters! Food and beverage industry workers of South Lake Tahoe and surrounding areas are among those currently unable to work due to threat of the Caldor Fire and the mandatory evacuations that occurred during the week of August 30th. We anticipate a slow transition back to normalcy once our community is able to return home and businesses are able to re-open.
With the partnership of Tahoe Prosperity Center, South Lake Brewing Company, Tahoe Chamber, South Tahoe Restaurant Association, and other restaurants and bars in South Lake Tahoe, a donation fund has been created to assist with our community’s food and beverage workers currently in need of financial assistance. Please donate whatever you can to support local service industry workers in need. All donations from this fund will go directly to employees of local businesses who are currently unable to work due to the fire, receive tips, and who have been evacuated from their homes with an unknown date of when they can return home and get back to work.
Donations are processed through the Tahoe Prosperity Center. Tahoe Prosperity Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization incorporated in the State of Nevada, registered in California and serving the entire Tahoe basin. No gifts, goods or services were provided in return for this donation. All donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
