Giving back to Jessie Duncan Elementary School!

“Reading is dreaming with open eyes”.

 

We’re thrilled to help Jessie Duncan Elementary School in Penhold continue to give opportunities for kids to read and dream, as well as keep them moving!  Jessie Duncan is the latest school on the receiving end of funds from our School Ice Cream Sandwich Program at our Red Deer location.

 

Every three months, the culinary teams at both of our restaurant locations create an out of this world ice cream sandwich and we select a local school to benefit from ice cream sandwich sales, kicking back $1 of every sandwich sold to a program or project of the school’s choice.

 

The “Cherry Explosion Jolly Rancher” ice cream sandwich landed on our Red Deer menu from June through August.  It included cherry explosion ice cream with Jolly Rancher pieces, between two monster cookies and topped with whipped cream and crushed Jolly Rancher candy. $1 from every ice cream sandwich sold will go towards the purchase of new gym equipment and library books at Jessie Duncan!

Our team was thrilled to team up with students to help assemble and deliver ice cream sandwiches to the school population through a pop-up ice cream sandwich sale in June.  High 5’s all around to the parents that chipped in the cash to order these sweet lunch treats, affording us the opportunity to raise some additional funds for the school!

Today (September 19th) we handed over a cheque to Jessie Duncan Elementary for $956 which included $732 raised from the school lunch order (we’re happy to kick back FULL lunch order proceeds)!

 

Our next Ice Cream Sandwich at our Red Deer location is the “Chocolate Chip Waffle” Ice Cream Sandwich in support of Ecole Oriole Park School in Red Deer.  It includes house-made chocolate chip waffles, chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream and whipped cream topped with chocolate sauce. $1 from every ice cream sandwich sold will go towards a new outdoor garden at the school!
