Santa might have given his reindeer the rest of the year off by the time Bob and Mary Carter made their way up to Mammoth Lakes from Bishop on Christmas Day, but those two little helpers, had one last Christmas gift to deliver. On Dec. 25, Carters made their way up to Mammoth Mountain Ski Area to make a donation to Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra’s newest endeavor, the National Wounded Warrior Center.
The Carters dropped off a check for $1,700 from the sales of special hand-carved reindeer. Bob and Mary carved several dozen of the wooden pieces from birch, and fashioned them in different sizes. All told, holiday shoppers snapped up all several dozen of the pieces as a great gift idea, a unique addition to their home holiday motifs or simply a way to support the NWWC effort.
The National Wounded Warrior Center facility will empower wounded, ill and injured servicemen and women by facilitating their transition into fulfilling civilian lives through a mix of education, rehabilitation, and health and wellness programs.
“We are thrilled to get this support,” Kathy Copeland said. “Unsolicited donations are like manna from heaven! It’s great to know there are these special people out there in the world!”
