What’s the Scoop? is excited to announce that it will be partnering with the American Red Cross to raise funds to benefit Hurricane 2012 disaster relief efforts.
On Monday, November 19, What’s the Scoop? will start selling a New York inspired flavor called “Big Apple” ice cream, a delicious concoction of apple ice cream swirled with a ribbon of caramel and crunchy bits of cone streusel. On Monday, November 19, from 12-10 p.m., 50 percent of the proceeds from sales of scoops and pints of this flavor will be donated to Red Cross. Additionally, Red Cross staff and volunteers will be on hand between 5-8 p.m. that evening to promote preparedness, sign up people for blood drives, accept donations, and provide updates on the relief effort.
According to Oregon Red Cross officials, more than 70 volunteers from Oregon have been deployed to the east coast to help with Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. These volunteers come from every one of the five Red Cross chapters in the state and include ten people who left Oregon on November 3 to drive five emergency response vehicles east to be used for food and water distribution to affected communities.
If you can’t make an ice cream purchase on November 19, stop by and buy a pint of the flavor during the rest of November and 50 percent of the proceeds will benefit Red Cross Sandy relief.
