Kirkwood Mountain Resort supports B&B

Bread and Broth is very grateful to Vail Resorts for its EpicPromise grant which funded the fifth “Adopt A Day of Nourishment” dinner of 2015 on May 4. The EpicPromise grant sponsorships are alternated on a monthly basis between Kirkwood Mountain Resort and Heavenly Mountain Resort. On May 4, Kirkwood Mountain Resort took the opportunity to send management team members who donated time to work with B&B volunteers to provide a hot, nutritious meal and a safe place for dinner guests to gather and socialize.

Bread & Broth would like to thank Kirkwood Mountain Resort management team members Dave Myers, Mountain Operations Director; Brian Bigley, Base Operations Director; Jon Copeland, Skier Services Director and Rebecca Daiek, Administrative Executive for being very dedicated and helpful volunteers. The team’s consensus was that they are happy to help and look forward to coming back at future Kirkwood sponsorships. With the recession and the depressed economics of the area, many community members continue to struggle with hunger. B&B works to ease this hunger by serving full-course meals on Mondays at Saint Theresa Church Grace Hall and soup suppers at Lake Tahoe Community Presbyterian Church on Fridays. B&B’s is able to continue its mission thanks to our generous volunteers, donors and sponsors. Kudos to Vail Resorts and Kirkwood Mountain Resort for their continuous and generous support. For more B&B information, visit http://www.bread and broth.org or find us on Facebook.

Heavenly Ski Patrol helps hungry

“Heavenly Ski Patrol welcomes the opportunity to serve our community in times of need. We appreciate all of the effort toward feeding the hungry and feel privileged to be a part of it today.” These were the collective words of Heavenly Ski Patrol members Jo Cain-Stiles, David E. Hellod and Nate Ludwig. These three Ski Patrol members were the volunteers representing the Heavenly Ski Patrol which sponsored the hot and nutritious meal served by Bread & Broth at the May 18 evening dinner. Approximately 95 meals were served by the welcoming Ski Patrol members. As a non-profit, all volunteer organization, B&B provides full course meals, giveaway food bags and “to go servings” every Monday evening at St. Theresa Church Grace Hall and provides a smaller meal at its “Second Serving” on Fridays at the Lake Tahoe Presbyterian Church. For several years now, the Heavenly Ski Patrol organization has been hosting two “Adopt A Day of Nourishments” annually. As always, the members from the Ski Patrol are really helpful with the dinner setup and stay to the very end of the dinner service helping with the dinner’s cleanup. Bread & Broth would like to thank the Heavenly Ski Patrol for its efforts to help those in need by providing the funds and giving their time to serve meals that ease hunger in the Lake Tahoe South Shore community.

Healthy Bottom Line

Thanks to the Soroptimist International of South Lake Tahoe for the generous grant to benefit the Healthy Bottom Line diaper distribution program at Choices for Children. In addition, our thanks go out to the community agencies and childcare providers who participated in the first Mother’s Day Diaper Drive to benefit the Choices for Children Healthy Bottom Line Program. Hundreds of diapers were donated and all will be distributed to babies in need. Statistics show that 1 in 3 American families struggle to provide diapering supplies for their babies. In South Lake Tahoe, the Healthy Bottom Line program helps hundreds of families each year meet this need by offering quarterly emergency diapering supplies to better stretch tight family budgets. Your donations and support keep this program going and help to keep babies clean and dry. What an amazing, caring community we live in!

With gratitude,

Round Hill Pines Beach Resort

Summer officially begins later this month, but it certainly felt like summer was in full force at the Round Hill Round Up Business After Hours Mixer (BAHM!) on May 28 at Round Hills Pines Beach Resort. More than 70 people experienced the resort’s new tiki bar and its new signature drink, the “Painkiller,” while enjoying the beautiful weather on the beach. Thanks to Round Hill Pines Beach Resort for hosting and providing a wonderful night of networking.
