While the holiday season is typically filled with family, friends, and gifts, some do not have the resources to provide for their families or themselves during the holidays. That is why, on a crisp December morning, Lake Tahoe School’s middle school students traveled to F.I.S.H. – Friends In Service Helping, a non-profit organization – in Carson City. There they sorted over 8,000 pounds worth of food for holiday meals for homeless, hungry, and underemployed individuals and families in the rural Northern Nevada community.

Following their work at F.I.S.H., the middle schoolers enjoyed lunch outside the Governor’s office and spent some time enjoying the capital of Nevada. They then finished the day off with a beautiful hike during their monthly cleanup of the East Shore Trail. Our Bobcats worked hard and enjoyed a lovely Nevada winter day, once again demonstrating the value of giving back to our community.
