LUDLOW, Vermont — During this holiday season of giving, it is also time to consider the needs of those less fortunate. On Sunday, Dec. 7, Okemo Mountain Resort will host its annual Cares and Shares Food Drive. When skiers and snowboarders donate at least three non-perishable food items, a new child’s toy or new clothing item, their generosity will be rewarded with an entire day of skiing and riding at Okemo for just $30.

Okemo Mountain Ambassadors will be accepting contributions in the Clock Tower base area throughout the day and Black River Good Neighbor Services Christmas Basket Program will help distribute the donated items to needy families in time for the December holidays.

“We want to make sure every family in the Okemo Valley has plenty to eat this holiday season,” says Okemo Events Manager Liam Fracht-Monroe. “This is a great way to get our guests involved in the local community and it’s a great way for Okemo to play a part.”
