By Terri Daoust Portota Editor In the aftermath of the at- tack on the United States, people have been banding to- gether to try and make a dif- ference. In that spirit, Plumas Sier- ra Telecommunications, the wholly owned subsidiary of the Plumas Sierra Rural Elec- tric Cooperative (PSREC) and local DirecTV and Internet, will match all funds donated by residents of Plumas, Lassen and Sierra counties and the Red Rock area of Washoe County, Nev. This program continues through Nov. 15. In addition to matching funds, Plumas Sierra Telecommunications has posted several funds and charities on their Web site. Funds are also being col- lected at thePSREC offices in Portola or Susanville. If you have already donated to the American Red Cross, Salvation Army, United Way, or New York Firefighter's Fund, or other recognized agencies since the tragedy, and can present documenta- tion such as Web page re- ceipts from online donations, canceled checks, or notes from local agencies, Plumas Sierra Telecommunications will donate a matching amount up to $10,000 total to similar charities. For more information, or to donate, call 1-800-555-2207 or email . Also joining in the effort to re-build America, Dollard's High Sierra Market in Porto- la has asked its customers to drop off monetary donations, which will be delivered to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. According to Justin Dol- lard,' customers have been overwhelming in answering the call to help and as of Mon- day, Sept. 17, more than $1,113 had been collected. Prevent scalding hot water injuries.
