Scoopz Ice Cream Parlour is using those delicious cones to help The Mustard Seed Kamloops fund its programs and services for those in need in the city.
The Scoopz Ice Cream Parlour’s Great Ice Cream Sell Off will return from Sept. 1 to Sept. 6.
During that time (or until supplies last), for every ice cream cone purchased at Scoopz, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Mustard Seed Kamloops.
Scoopz is located downtown in the Sandman Signature Hotel at Lansdowne Street and Second Avenue, across from Riverside Park, and is open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
In addition to the Great Ice Cream Sell Off,
Mustard Seed’s Thrift Store at 342 Seymour St. will be giving customers the opportunity to make a donation of $2 and enter their name in a draw to win two, 1.4-litre tubs of Foothills ice cream from Scoopz. The winner of the draw will be announced on Sept. 15 and will work with Scoopz on the winning flavours.
“For years, our family has loved heading to Scoopz on a hot summer evening,” Mustard Seed managing director Kelly Thomson said.
“Even though we’ve been longstanding customers, we still haven’t tired all of their amazing flavours.”
Scoopz features 48 flavours, available on regular or waffle cones (gluten-free cone options are available) or in assorted cup sizes.
“Our team at the Mustard Seed is so thankful Adrianne Erlandson, Scoopz’s owner, and her family recognize the importance of the work we do in our community, and we deeply thank them for their support,” Thomson said.
The fundraiser will help provide nourishing meals and shelter to those in need.
“I feel like it’s important to support local organizations like the Mustard Seed, especially these days,” Erlandson said.
“We’re seeing a huge influx of those less fortunate needing our support and we’re grateful to be in a position where we can help.”
