Different times calls for different twists and turns, but regardless we are thrilled to keep our Ice Cream Sandwich Program supporting local schools going strong! We had the pleasure of spending some time in early March at Terrace Ridge School for our 3rd pop-up stop. As a result of the covid 19 restrictions our program took a little break, but we were excited to kick in another 3 months of ice cream sandwich sales from September to the end of November.
Under the program we kick back full proceeds from the pop-up sale ($4/sandwich) as well as $1 from every ice cream sandwich sold in the restaurant over the 3-month period to the school. Our latest creation was a play on black forest cake; 2 maraschino cherry cookies with Dutch chocolate ice cream and sprinkles!
Today we were honored to hand over a cheque for $1,090!
Terrace Ridge will be using the proceeds to help replace and supplement Physical Education Supplies and Resources. Schools do receive funding for basic gym supplies like dodge balls, volleyballs, basketballs, nets, hula hoops, bean bags, badminton rackets and more but maintaining those items each year is costly. The school needs to ensure they always have enough equipment for 30-50 students to participate at a time and with over 400 students at the school that equipment is well used! School Principal Deborah Van Delden says they are also eager to expose students to as many new and exciting opportunities as possible and they currently have a wish list that includes indoor floor curling, don’t walk in the hallway decals, Gaga Ball, and 9 square in the air.
A BIG thank-you to the amazing group of Grade 6 students who worked alongside our team for the pop-up in March, and to all parents who helped their kids purchase an ice cream sandwich treat at school, not to mention those that made a trip into the restaurant to dig into one!
For the next 3 months we’re supporting Iron Ridge Intermediate Campus and their nutrition program with the “Super Hero” Ice Cream Sandwich. Strawberry, Banana, Blueberry ice cream is nestled in-between 2 house baked double chocolate cookies, and a house-made bubble gum whipped cream!
