Thank you Channel 3 News for inspiring us to approach Piersons Building Center to solicit donations of rain gear for homeless veterans!

Today a reporter from News Channel 3 approached one of the Directors of The TAHOE Foundation
at Piersons Building Center in California...He asked what the director was shopping for, to prepare for the up and coming storm. This prompted a response that there was not much concern for serious flooding due to the small amount of snow pack.. This fact was derived as a result of  the history talks hosted by Piersons and often delivered by Jerry Rohde regarding the 1964 flood of the Eel River, and when asked what the Directors needed, they immediately thought of those which might need
protection from the rains, regardless of the pending danger or damage of this storm..

Our Director immediately went to find rain suits asked who to talk to in order to have some suits donated and in the course of ten minutes Pierson's staff  immediately responded with the donation of four all weather gear suits to be handed out to veterans who are on the streets, in order to stay dry.

Our vets are the primary resource to archive histories outlining the education for our populace to be informed about our public persona as a country worldwide.

WE VALUE OUR VETS AT THE TAHOE FOUNDATION; AND PRAY FOR THEM THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!!!

Thank you Piersons for the donation and your wonderful contributions to the local history education through the history talks you sponsor.
