Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows Announce Round Two of the Annual “Food Fight” for Project MANA

Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows will host second annual donation drive to help Project MANA’s efforts to feed those in need

 

[Olympic Valley and Alpine Meadows, Calif.] November 5, 2012 –Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows are embarking on year two of their friendly competition to raise money for Project MANA, a Truckee/North Lake Tahoe hunger relief organization. Each resort has donated $500, for a total of $1,000, to get the “Food Fight” started, and guests are encouraged to join the fight and pitch in on behalf of their favorite resort to help alleviate hunger in the community during the holiday season.

“Project MANA is invaluable to our community,” said Andy Wirth, CEO of Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows. “The Food Fight is a fun way for us to help raise money and contribute to this important cause. We’re opening up the competition to our guests to vote for their favorite resort through their contributions. Though one resort will be crowned victor, the real win will be for the people in need that Project MANA feeds.”

Now through New Year’s Day, guests of Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows can donate to Project MANA through the resorts’ online stores or as part of any lift ticket or season pass purchase.  One hundred percent of donations will go directly to Project MANA.

“We sincerely appreciate this support,” said Heidi Allstead, Project MANA executive director. “Our role is to help alleviate hunger, to make sure the members of our community have their basic needs met and make sure people have enough to eat during tough times. This time of year in particular presents a lot of need and the extra support helps make a big difference.”

Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows invite the community and guests to join them and make a donation to Project MANA. With one hundred percent of donations going directly to put nutritious food on the tables for those in need within the North Lake Tahoe Community – helping to support Project MANA is a great way to give back this holiday season.
