Social and Environmental Impact Activities for Groups to Enrich Their Experiences

NORTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – November 28, 2016 – The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe, a Northern California mountain retreat unlike any other, is proudly offering Impact Experiences for groups to contribute to the Lake Tahoe community. Impact Experiences are social and environmental activities ideal for groups that want to engage in efforts that support child well-being, hunger and poverty relief, and environmental responsibility. Groups can give back to the community this holiday season and beyond, while receiving a memorable and enriching experience that extends well after their stay ends.

Impact Experiences offers on-property activities at the resort that can be incorporated in the meeting agenda during lunch breaks, receptions and coffee breaks, such as:

  • Partnering with the resort’s culinary team to prepare the ingredients for a regionally adapted dish for donation to a local hunger relief organization
  • Assembling school supplies and art materials in backpacks for donation to students whose academic success is threatened by poverty
  • Collaborating in teams to assemble emergency preparedness kits for shipping to a disaster relief facility or community organization
  • Designing and creating greetings and birthday cards for children in a local pediatric healthcare facility or children’s organization
  • Impact Hour, a platform for leaders from The Ritz-Carlton non-profit partner organizations to showcase how they are successfully addressing social and environmental issues

Additionally, Signature Impact Experiences are available for groups to participate in during an off-site volunteer activity, unique to the Lake Tahoe destination. For organizations looking to participate in unique outdoor team building activities in Lake Tahoe, these Signature Impact Experiences include:

The Forests of the Lake
Discover another side of Lake Tahoe’s unique and diverse ecosystem. In cooperation with the Sugar Pine Foundation, group guests can work together to collect pine cones, plant trees and care for saplings. This special effort will help ensure the reforestation of Lake Tahoe’s native sugar pine trees and surrounding woods.

Protecting the Lake’s Future
Help preserve the deep blue waters of Lake Tahoe and its peaceful shoreline. With the League to Save Lake Tahoe, group guests can assist in invasive-species monitoring, trail restorations, and water-quality improvements. These efforts help ensure the protection of the region’s pristine environment and allow future generations to enjoy this great natural wonder.  

The guiding principles of the company’s social and environmental responsibility program, Community Footprints, align issues that are important to the communities where the resort operates. By mobilizing resources and volunteer efforts, The Ritz-Carlton strives to make a meaningful impact in the community. The Ritz-Carlton was the first Founding Partner of IMPACT 2030, a private-sector led initiative in collaboration with the United Nations and other global stakeholders that will marshal corporate volunteering action to advance the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
