Got your attention? Look closely -it says "pantry" (with an "r")! You know - the place in the kitchen where you keep all your non-mentionables ... I mean non-perishables! All those canned vegetables, jars of spaghetti sauce, dried beans, pasta and rice are really going to come in handy on Sunday, November 25.
During this season of giving thanks, it is also time to consider the needs of those less fortunate. Okemo is hosting its annual Cares and Shares Food Drive tomorrow, November 25. 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 $25.
Okemo Mountain Ambassadors will be accepting contributions outside the Clock Tower base lodge 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.
So dig deep, clear out one of those pantry shelves, and Okemo will thank you for your generosity with a deeply discounted lift ticket.
