Ivanna Cone Donates Portion of Ice Cream Sales to The Gathering Place
Wonderful things happen when organizations come together to achieve shared goals. During the month of March, Ivanna Cone made batches of “Gather ‘Round” ice cream, inspired by the work of The Gathering Place. Throughout the month, a portion of sales from this flavor—which was a delicious combination of peanut butter ice cream with caramelized apples and Snickers—were donated to The Gathering Place. Adding to their generosity, Ivanna Cone donated 10% of all sales from 5-9 p.m. on March 27 to The Gathering Place.
This isn’t the first time Ivanna Cone has shown their support of The Gathering Place. Every month, their self-described “Coneheads” have served ice cream to guests, and even created holiday decorations for The Gathering Place to lift the spirits of those visiting.
The Gathering Place is a program of Community Action that serves over 27,000 hot evening meals annually to those struggling with hunger in Lincoln. Evening meals are served Monday through Friday from 5-6 p.m. This important work is made possible through the hard work and dedication of over 1,600 volunteers annually, and contributions from the community.
