In an effort to help the local community, Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) is hosting a food drive on January 25th to support both the Crested Butte and Gunnison food banks. Guests who donate three non-perishable non-expired food items will receive a $35 lift ticket, valid for Sunday, January 25, 2015.
As a company we value the local community and want to do something to give back, above our normal donations. We thought that providing food for both the Gunnison and Crested Butte food pantries was a great way for us to help, from the CBMR family, explains Ethan Mueller, president of CBMR. It is something that as a company we have done for years at Okemo Mountain in Vermont. We thought now was time to do the same here in Crested Butte.
When a guest brings three cans of non-perishable food to the Adventure Center on January 25, they will receive a coupon for a $35 lift ticket to be used that day. Volunteers will be helping to verify the food donations and sort into boxes. CBMR will then help transport the goods to the food shelves in both Gunnison and Crested Butte. The local food pantries encourage canned protein items, such as canned tuna, chili, peanut butter and soups, but of course all donations are welcome.
