Free Ice Cream for a Year? Giving Back is Sweet!
The Ben & Jerry’s in Inman Park is partnering with Mentoring Exceptional Leaders (MEL) and Social Justice Atlanta to provide hygiene products for veterans, family members of incarcerated persons, and other community members. If you come into their location between December 7th and January 7th and make a donation you will be entered into a drawing to win free ice cream for a year. There are many runner up prizes available including mouth watering scoops, and some coupons to get your spirits lifted this year. All proceeds are being directly donated to our partner organizations
MEL seeks to positively impact the lives of each mentee by teaching life skills through diverse enrichment programs, academic development, and social activities, to motivate and inspire them to excel personally and professionally. They are also partnering with Social Justice Atlanta to help distribute the hygiene products to those in need in the Atlanta community.
“Everyone's a winner here. Giving back is a win-win situation. Each year we do some holiday giving and we are trying this virtual event to keep people safe and still give back. We hope to see you in the shop soon.”- Daming Porter, the shop’s Senior Community Changemaker
Community health efforts can make a difference in many lives this holiday season. Dignity is very important and they are hoping to do more than just raise funds; they are looking to raise awareness.
