Mammoth Community Foundation


Through its Economic Development efforts, MCF entered into a strategic alliance with the Mammoth Festival of Beers and Bluesapalooza to serve as the Non-Profit organization that provides the ABC license for the event. MCF also allowed local non-profits to earn revenue for their organizations. These non-profits assisted with the event through beverage pouring, parking management, and crowd control. In the first year of this strategic alliance, over $47,000 was distributed to thirteen local non-profit organizations. This year we have over 400 volunteers! All of the tips and parking money are pooled together and divided amongst our non-profit organizations. We thank those groups who have staffed the event… and raised money at the same time.

Don’t Wait – Vaccinate!


As the new school year approaches, ensure your child’s health is in top shape. Call your child’s healthcare provider to make sure they’re up to date on all routine vaccines and schedule a check-up today.
Getting all of the recommended vaccines is one of the most important things a parent can do to protect their child’s health. Whether it’s a baby starting at a new childcare facility, a toddler heading to preschool, a student going back to elementary, middle, or high school – or even a college freshman – parents should check their child’s vaccine records. Learn more about shots for school and other vaccines.



CalChamber-Opposed State-Run Health Bill

“SB 770’s ultimate goal is to force all Californians out of their existing health coverage—including Medicare, employer-based coverage and ACA [Affordable Care Act] plans— and into a new untested government-run system, with no ability to opt-out or choose private coverage instead,” the CalChamber said in an opposition letter. The bill has been postponed by the Assembly Appropriations Committee but will be acted upon when legislators reconvene from summer recess.  Click here for details

Job Opening Gap Remains Wide

While economists talk about the labor market cooling, there were 9.6 million job openings in June, down only 34,000 from May.
Why it matters: There are now 3.6 million more job openings than unemployed workers. The worker shortage continues to be a major challenge for employers.
Be smart: The labor market remains tight. Hiring in June remained at the same level as in May, and quits dropped slightly.
·  Businesses are still adding workers, and workers are still confident they can quit their current jobs and find better ones easily.
Bottom line: A persistent labor shortage may be the new normal for employers.
