Mountain High Resort is getting into the holiday spirit a little early this season by supporting needy families of the High Desert with a toy and canned food drive sponsored by The Society of Saint Vincent De Paul. As a bonus any guest who brings an unwrapped toy or non-perishable food item to Mountain High between November 28th and December 16th, 2011, will receive $10 off an adult, 8-Hour lift ticket. But wait! Ticket must be purchased at the time of donation and this promotion may not be used in conjunction with any other discount/offer or be redeemed for cash.
“We are very proud to offer this promotion. Saint Vincent De Paul is a powerful source for good, not only during the holidays but all year long, and we are happy to be helping such a worthy cause,” exclaims Cindy Shippy, Resort Experiences Manager.
The Society of Saint Vincent De Paul’s primary goal is to alleviate the suffering of those who are less fortunate. They depend solely on donations of food, clothing, and money from Parishioners, residents, and local businesses. Although they are a Catholic organization, they offer help to all individuals regardless of religion, race, age, gender or lifestyle. This help is mainly in the form of food, toiletries, clothing and household supplies but may also involve assistance with propane and other household utilities as our funds permit.
The local Conference operates from the two parishes of Blessed Junipero Serra in Phelan and Our Lady of the Snows in Wrightwood; serving the tri-community area of Wrightwood, Pinion Hills and Phelan. Locally, they operate a food pantry on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month which is open to all in the community who are in need. They also have a hotline number people can call if their need is more immediate (760) 868-4342. This past 2010-11 fiscal year, they served more than 5,700 people. And unfortunately, the number of people in need is increasing dramatically each year.
Please help Mountain High support the Society of Saint Vincent De Paul and the local community this holiday season with a donation of an unwrapped toy or non-perishable can of food.
