Outreach

The Outreach Program at Our Lady of Tahoe Church began in 1992 to assist 10 families. As of January 2018, it is helping 61 families from Douglas County in Nevada and South Lake Tahoe in Californa - over 380 local people (240 adults + 140 children). We also assist 5 additional families on the “wait list” each month with extra food we may have to distribute.

We provide supplemental food boxes on a monthly basis; boxes contain - eggs, cheese, fresh vegetables, canned goods, meat, tortillas - this constitutes a balanced diet.

Thirty five volunteers help distribute the food into the boxes the 2nd Friday of each month (9:00 AM - 12:00 PM), and on the following Saturday (9:00 AM - 10:30 AM) our families come to our parish hall to receive their food boxes.

We spend about $2,000 a month on food purchases at wholesale prices. These purchases come from the Food Bank of Northern Nevada, Bonanza Produce, and local businesses, along with donated food products from collections at each mass.

Our Outreach Program also assists with:

  • Education: We distribute books that are age appropriate to the Outreach children during the year.
  • Medical: Insurance information is given out to our families.
  • Dental: Toothbrushes and toothpaste are given out 2 times/year.
  • Referrals to other agencies
  • Christmas: Outreach places a Sharing Tree in the church for parishioners and visitors to donate presents for our Outreach children.
  • Household items: furniture, clothing, towels, sheets, blankets are collected for families and distributed.

Our Outreach Program continues because of the generous donations from parishioners and visitors to our parish.

Please consider volunteering in our Outreach Program - we ALWAYS welcome new members! The office secretary will give you contact information. We are blessed to be serving our community for over 25 years!
