Ski Granby Ranch Collects 850 Pounds of Food during Annual “Carve Away Hunger” Drive

-Food drive to benefit needy families just one way Colorado resort gives back-

 

GRANBY, Colo. — Ski Granby Ranch, a Colorado resort getaway located less than two hours from Denver, today announced that it donated 850 pounds of food to Grand County nonprofit Mountain Family Center (MFC) through its annual “Carve Away Hunger” food drive. The drive encouraged ranch visitors to donate non-perishable food items during opening week in exchange for discounted lift tickets. MFC distributes the food to the community and to schoolchildren, grades K-8, who experience food insecurities at home. 


According to Wenda Huseman, V.P. Marketing & Sales at Granby Ranch, this year’s drive bested last year’s effort by more than 300 pounds. “Granby Ranch is founded on the principles of community – one that extends beyond our own neighborhoods to the businesses and residents of Grand County,” says Huseman. “It’s heartwarming to see such a tremendous outpouring of support for such a worthy cause, especially during the holiday season.”

The annual food drive is just one of the ways Granby Ranch gives back to the local community, says Huseman. Here is a look at a few of the other “Granby Ranch Gives” initiatives.

  • Founding member of the Grand Foundation, annual cash and in-kind donations
  • Financially support the Grand Enterprise Initiative
  • Host the Bonfire Warriors program annually
  • Mountain access and staff support to Middle Park High School’s ski team training program
  • Grand county students ski and ride free on Fridays
  • Ranch to Ranch XC Ski Trek to support Grand County youth
  • Financially support the Granby community fireworks 4th of July display
  • $378,000 to the Town of Granby for downtown enhancements and park facilities
  • 55 acres of land donated to support new ball fields, future recreation center, future affordable housing, and to build the Middle Park Medical Center

 “We give back because we believe that the success and prosperity of our neighbors elevates all of us.” Huseman adds, “As we like to say, ‘A rising tide lifts all boats.’”

About Granby Ranch (www.granbyranch.com)
Located just 90 minutes from Denver and just 15 minutes from Winter Park and the western entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, Granby Ranch is not a typical mountain getaway. It’s a peaceful mountain retreat that allows people to be closer to the mountains. At Granby Ranch it’s all about Colorado’s great outdoors. After connecting with nature, guests and residents connect with one another by gathering at the Grill and the fire pit for drinks or s’mores. Granby Ranch delivers Colorado skiing for less than other mountain resorts and strongly appeals to families and empty nesters who can stay in a privately owned slope-side condo, townhome, cabin or luxury home rental on their Colorado mountain getaway. Year-round activities range from fishing and golfing to biking and skiing.
