Tahoe fire victims receive aid

Several groups and individuals have started collecting food, supplies and clothing for victims of the Angora Fire at Lake Tahoe, which continues to rage.

Nevada County Realtor Mary Margaretich lived in Tahoe for 12 years and her own home burned to the ground in 2001, she said. She is collecting diapers, baby clothes, toothbrushes, men’s and women’s clothes, socks, dishes, furniture and checks made out to the South Lake Tahoe Red Cross.

Margaretich can receive donations at Network Real Estate offices; look for the U-Haul truck at 855 Sutton Way and at 167 S. Auburn St. in Grass Valley, or call 271-3603.

Squaw Valley USA is collecting blankets, food, towels, cooking supplies, pet goods and children’s clothing. They already have enough clothing for adults.

Squaw Valley is receiving donations from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. through Sunday at the Olympic Village Lodge off Highway 89 between Truckee and Tahoe City at the end of Squaw Valley Road. For more information, call 583-6985.
