Monarch Mountain is participating in this nationwide campaign to collect new and lightly used ski goggles for first responders and healthcare workers who currently do not have eye protection when treating patients with COVID 19.
Monarch Mountain is hosting a goggle collection drive beginning on Earth Day, April 22, 2020. Collection boxes will be outside the front entrances of the Monarch Mountain Outpost, Salida; CKS Main, Buena Vista and Elevation Beer Company, Poncha Springs. Collection boxes will remain available at the three locations until the demand for goggles is met.
“Collected goggles will be disinfected and packaged for shipment to area hospitals and first responders who have requested them as part of the Goggles for Docs initiative,” said Kathryn Wadsworth, Monarch Event Coordinator.
