Killington Resort Creating COVID Fund for Local Businesses
Killington Resort is launching a program to feed the local community as well as offer grants to local businesses hurt by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mike Solimano, president and general manager of Killington Resort and Pico Mountain, said Monday that the new Pay It Forward Fund will boost a local community food drive effort as well as grant between $1,000 and $2,500 to local businesses who apply.
The fund has $350,000 in it, donated by the Cumming Foundation, said Solimano. The foundation is named for John and David Cumming. John Cumming is the founder of POWDR, the company that owns the Killington and Pico resorts. The fund plans to disperse a total of $2.25 million from the foundation to POWDR resorts across North America.
