Smiles all around. Raising some cash for local schools. Win. Win!
The latest stop for our Red Deer School Ice Cream Sandwich Program was St. Teresa of Avila School. Every three months, both of our restaurant locations select a local school to benefit from ice cream sandwich sales, and we kick back $1 of every sandwich sold to a program or project of the school’s choice.
The “Espresso Yourself” ice cream sandwich landed on our Red Deer menu from December through February. It included chocolate espresso flake ice cream with dark chocolate peppermint patty, nestled in-between two ginger molasses cookies and topped with candy cane whipped cream. $1 from every ice cream sandwich sold went towards St. Teresa’s efforts to be a mindful school, creating a culture of mindfulness, kindness and gratitude.
School Principal Nicole Zimmerman says St. Teresa has been working towards becoming a mindful school for the past three years. They will use the funds raised to purchase mindful tools, books and resources for classrooms. You can follow some of the work happening in the classroom on the school’s social media channels #themindfulschool or sttavila.
Our team was thrilled to deliver ice cream sandwiches to the school in February as part of a pre-order sale. A huge pat on the back to all the parents that ordered these sweet lunch treats, affording us the opportunity to raise some additional funds for the school!
Today we handed over a cheque to St. Teresa of Avila for $1267 which included $1060 raised from the school lunch order (we’re happy to kick back FULL lunch order proceeds)!
Our current Ice Cream Sandwich at our Red Deer location is the “Monster Jam” which includes two monster cookies with Algonquin ice cream, green whipped cream and a Cadbury cream egg cracked over top! $1 from every ice cream sandwich sold will go towards Normandeau School and their “Come Grow With Me” campaign to build a greenhouse for the kids!
