To volunteer to help others is a selfless act that is both humbling and uplifting. Thanks to Vail’s generous EpicPromise grant, Kirkwood Mountain Resort employees had the opportunity to volunteer at Bread & Broth’s November 6th, Monday Meal through B&B’s ‘Adopt A Day of Nourishment” program. Kirkwood department Security Officers Mark DeSacia, Rick Hofheins and Charlie Noury and David McCullers, Security Manager, all volunteered their time and effort to make a difference in the lives of those attending the meal served at Grace Hall.
Every Monday, B&B serves full-course, nutritious meals, provides ‘seconds’ for those interested and packs containers of the dinner’s leftovers to give to anyone who attends each dinner. In addition, funding from the AAD $250 donation is used to purchase fruits, vegetables and dairy products which are packed into ‘giveaway’ bags also filled with canned goods and breads/pastries donated by local stores and businesses. No guest who ever attends a B&B dinner ever goes away hungry or without food to use for later in the week.
Mark, Rick, Charlie and David were a fun group to work with and they did an outstanding job representing their Security Department and Kirkwood Mountain Resort. “Our team feels a great deal of love and support for our Tahoe community,’ commented David. “It is our pleasure to volunteer our time for a place we love so much.” B&B would like to thank Kirkwood Mountain Resort and these four sponsor volunteers who so generously served the vulnerable members of our community.
