Community Disaster Resource Center
Caldor Fire Relief for South Lake Tahoe, Meyers, and Echo Summit
The Community Disaster Resource Center (CDRC) mission is to acquire and distribute public and private donations and grants to provide short-term emergency assistance, longer term aid, information, and other resources to residents of South Lake Tahoe displaced by disaster to ensure such residents have the basic necessities such as food, clothing, housing, and transportation.
The CDRC served the community in helping rebuild their lives and home following the 2007 Angora Fire. We raised and distributed over $1 million to the over 600 affected residents. We also supported the community through the distribution of clothes, gift cards for food and supplies, and even money for revegetation of lots. CDRC also organized many meetings to help the community move forward and recover from devastating losses.
The Caldor Fire has deeply impacted the Lake Tahoe Region. Properties have been destroyed and smoke damaged, and the locals who keep our businesses and restaurants running are still recovering from the impacts of COVID-19. Low income, under-insured, and uninsured residents are in need of help and support following this disaster.
It's a long road to recovery. We can do this together one step at a time. We are Tahoe Strong!
