Celebrate Summer with 10,000 Scoops of Ice Cream!

We’ve waited all year and it’s finally here – the first day of summer! The season is a veritable celebration of life’s simplest pleasures, such as shedding your shoes for a barefoot jaunt in the grass, lingering on the porch to enjoy a beautiful sunset, and savoring the smell of charcoal as the breeze carries with it the aromas of outdoor barbecues.

And of course, it can’t be summer without a cold scoop of ice cream! Thankfully, Denali Flavors, creator of Moose Tracks Ice Cream, has this covered.

In Grand Rapids, Michigan, Denali Flavors will give out 10,000 free scoops of Moose Tracks ice cream today in an event that not only celebrates the inauguration of summer, but also supports The Salvation Army. For every scoop of ice cream eaten, Denali Flavors will donate $1 to The Salvation Army’s Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center in Grand Rapids that is scheduled to open later this year. The money will help support the many programs that will be offered to local youth in the areas of education, fine arts, sports, health, and spiritual development. This incredible multi-use facility will contain a gymnasium and performing arts, education, aquatic, fitness and worship centers.

You can read more information about the progress of The Salvation Army’s Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center in Grand Rapids by visiting their website HERE.

We hope some hungry volunteers out there  can find room in their hearts (and stomachs) to help finish off all this free ice cream today. There’s no better way to put your appetite to good use. Happy  summer!

  1. We did it! Yesterday was a perfect opening day of summer and we made it to our goal of 10,000 scoops!

    This was truly a blessing – the $10,000 will be put to good use at our new Kroc Center. Thank you so much to Denali Flavors, Country Fresh Dairy, and all the ice cream eaters that came to help out!
