Snowbird, Utah – Continuing its tradition of providing free Tram rides while helping Utah’s hungry, Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort collected thousands of pounds of food during the resort’s annual Customer Appreciation Days. The donation will be presented to the Utah Food Bank on Oct. 26 at 1:30 p.m., and media are invited to the delivery. A representative from each organization will be on-hand for interviews. In addition, a financial contribution of $4,261 was raised for Wasatch Adaptive Sports.
An exact figure of non-perishable food donated will be determined at the Utah Food Bank on Friday.
What: Delivery of several tons of food to the Utah Food Bank.
Where: Utah Food Bank, 3150 S. 900 W., Salt Lake City.
When: Fri., Oct. 26, 2012, 1:30 p.m.
Guests were asked to donate one can of food in exchange for a free Tram ride, or in lieu of food, customers could make a $3 donation to Wasatch Adaptive Sports. The food will help some of the 10 percent of Utahns who live in poverty.
“November is a critical time for the emergency food network and we are in great need for donations,” said Ginette Bott, Utah Food Bank Chief Marketing Officer. “We are very appreciative for the ongoing generosity of Snowbird and community members alike who give their support of food, cash and volunteer time.”
Offering the longest ski and snowboard season in Utah, Snowbird is scheduled to open for the 2012-13 season on Sat., Nov. 17, weather permitting.
