Bolton Valley To Partner With Vermont Peanut Butter Company

Food Drive On March 21 Will Benefit Richmond Food Shelf

BOLTON VALLEY, VT (3/5/2015) -

Bolton Valley and the Vermont Peanut Butter Company will team up for a food drive on March 21 to benefit the Richmond Food Shelf. By donating jars of peanut butter to the local nonprofit, both companies hope to help combat hunger and give back to their local community.

"Hunger is an issue that, unfortunately, exists in the state of Vermont," said Josh Arneson, Director of Sales & Marketing at Bolton Valley. "This is just a small thing we can do to help it disappear. Hopefully, we can make a difference in someone's life by collecting jars of Vermont Peanut Butter for the Food Shelf."

Skiers and riders who donate a jar of Vermont Peanut Butter on March 21 at Bolton Valley will also get $15 off an All Access Lift Ticket for the day. Vermont Peanut Butter will match every jar of peanut butter that is donated in order to double the contribution to the Food Shelf.

"I am very happy to be able to partner with such a great resort for such a wonderful cause,” said Chris Kaiser, Founder and President of Vermont Peanut Butter Co. “Vermont Peanut Butter has become a leader in nutrition, and our strong proclivity towards helping our communities has always been a big part of who we are.

Vermont Peanut Butter will be handing out samples of their delicious peanut and almond butters in the base lodge during the day as well.

Bolton Valley is having one of its best seasons in recent memory, already topping 225" of snow with about a month left in the season. After the snowiest January in four years, February surpassed it with over six feet of snow and March has brought a foot of fresh in its first five days.

Approximately 100km of high elevation Nordic terrain, a complete Sports Center and Indoor Amusement Center plus Vermont’s most extensive top-to-bottom night skiing and riding are just a few of the extras available to guests.
