GRAND TRAVERSE COUNTY., (WPBN/WGTU) --A global pandemic is no excuse to waste food!
Treetops Resort in Gaylord made the decision Monday to close its doors in response to the coronavirus.
Fortunately, the resort is taking the opportunity to help out their employees.
Tuesday the team had the chance to fill their grocery bags with perishable food items that would have been used by guests.
The goal was to alleviate stress for their staff during this difficult time.
"You know, this isn't our fault, it's really nobody's fault, but the fact of the matter is they're going to have a bit of a hit on their income and any way that we can, we will help out," said Kevin McKinley the Assistant General Manager at Treetops Resort. "Besides, there might be some of these items that are in short demand at the grocery store as well so why not fill their cupboards and their fridges."
Treetops Resort also said they will be refunding individuals who had purchased lift tickets, lessons, or rentals.
They hope to reopen Monday, April 6.
