There has been a huge outpouring of support for Tahoe Magic during the COVID-19 crisis. With that support is a growing need in the South Lake Tahoe community.

In just five weeks, the South Lake Tahoe non-profit has given away over $110,000 to more than local 785 families in need. In a normal year they give out about $30,000 to deserving families.

Funds from Tahoe Magic are dispersed through a referral basis and go to assist with housing, food, and utilities. Tahoe Magic sends the funds directly to the landlord, gas and electric companies, or supply food gift cards.

Many South Lake Tahoe residents have been affected dramatically during this pandemic. With so many businesses closed, there are a great number of residents who are now jobless. Tahoe Magic is working hard to give some relief to those who have little or no income.

This crisis is not over and with your support, Tahoe Magic can continue helping.
