Thanks to Vail’s Epic Promise Grant funds, Heavenly Mountain Resort hosts six Adopt A Day of Nourishment dinners every year. Bread & Broth is very grateful for Vail’s financial support and the many hours that Heavenly team members donate of their personal time to support B&B’s efforts to ease hunger in our community by hosting Monday Meal dinners.
Hosting their fifth AAD of the year on October 15th, Heavenly’s AAD sponsor crew was staffed by members of their Security team. Tom Maugeri, Security Manager shared his thoughts about participating at the evening’s dinner. “What an honor and a blessing to be given the opportunity to join B&B in serving our community. To see the smiles and gratitude from all of the staff and guests was heartwarming. It was eye opening to see how many in our town need this help. Thank you to B&B for providing this amazing outreach!”
Joining Tom were fellow security team members Nathan Castellanos, Hans Eckhoff, Jen Kawaratani and Bill Nelson. In addition to bagging food for “giveaways”, the team dished out 95 first servings followed up with 18 servings for dinner guests who came back for seconds. They were a busy crew also helping with serving desserts and drinks and even helping with washing/drying and Grace Hall’s cleanup.
B&B would not be able to serve the weekly Monday Meal dinners without the financial support of our AAD sponsors. Sponsors like Heavenly Mountain Resort ensure that the our community’s at-risk population have a hot, nutritious meal and a place where they are treated with warmth and dignity every week of the year.
