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

The Mammoth Lakes Chamber of Commerce is once again hosting the Spirit of Giving Week. This year the week is co-hosted and supported by the Mammoth Lakes Noon Rotary Club. Thanks so much to our local Rotarians for helping make this week possible!

Spirit of Giving Week officially kicks off on Friday, November 24 with the Town of Mammoth Lakes’ tree lighting ceremony at The Village at Mammoth and concludes on Friday, December 1 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, a Christmas program for income eligible children. The Fun Shop will offer a 30% discount on any toy purchased as a donation and 10% off any personal purchase after that. Other unwrapped presents should be dropped off at Mammoth Fun Shop by Wednesday, Dec. 13 to be included.

Tuesday, November 28 is national Giving Tuesday, so we ask the community to give to a local charity to celebrate that day. See our list of local non-profits.

On Thursday, November 30, participating restaurants around town will be donating 10% of their receipts to local charities. See a list of restaurants participating in Restaurant Give-Back Day.

On Friday, December 1, volunteers from the Chamber and the Rotary Club will be stationed in the Footloose Sports parking lot from 12-6 pm to collect donations of toys, clothing and non-perishable food to Stuff the Bus. All donations will be given to local charities. If you’re not around on Friday, you can drop donations in the bins inside Footloose Sports.

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