Spirit of Giving Week

spirit-of-giving-logo-no-date

The holidays are upon us, and it’s time to give thanks for all we have and help those who are less fortunate.

Expanding on past years’ community-wide food, toy and clothing drive, the Mammoth Lakes Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Parks and Recreation Department, The Village at Mammoth and community stakeholders are hosting the “Spirit of Giving Week.” The week is meant to remind people that the holidays are about giving, not receiving. See coverage from the 2016 Spirit of Giving Week.

The Spirit of Giving Week begins on Friday, November 25 with the Town of Mammoth Lakes’ tree lighting ceremony at The Village at Mammoth and concludes on Friday, December 2 in the Footloose Sports parking lot with a bus stuffed with donations.

During the week, we ask the community to donate toys at the Mammoth Fun Shop that will be forwarded to the Angel Giving Tree. The Fun Shop will offer a 30% discount on any toy purchased as a donation and 10% off any personal purchase after that.

Tuesday, November 29 is national Giving Tuesday, so we ask the community to give to a local charity to celebrate that day.

On Thursday, December 1, participating restaurants around town will be donating 10% of their receipts to local charities.

On Friday, December 2, volunteers will be stationed in the Footloose Sports parking lot from 12-6 pm to collect donations of toys, warm clothing and non-perishable food. All donations will be distributed to local charities including IMACA, the Giving Tree and Wild Iris.

Please join us in the spirit of giving this holiday season.
