Eat ice cream guilt-free at Friendly’s this week
Posted on May 5th, 2014 by Beth
It’s May already—time to start thinking about signing up for summer camp! The idea of sending a child with special needs off to camp can seem challenging to parents and kids alike—how can you be sure that your child will get the attention he or she needs? Will your child be able to participate fully? What about the other kids? Will your child make friends? Will they understand your child’s special needs?
The good news is that there are many camp choices for kids with special needs that can answer all those questions and quell your concerns. Easter Seals Camp Friendly’s is one of these special programs, providing campers with opportunities to focus on the amazing things they can do, rather than the things they can’t.
Every summer Camp Friendly’s programs make it possible for kids with autism and other disabilities to participate in regular camp activities like boating, canoeing, swimming, archery, ropes courses, horseback riding, hiking, basketball and fishing. Friendly’s Restaurants, LLC, has been a corporate sponsor of Easter Seals for years. Since 1981, their Cones for Kids campaign has raised tens of millions of dollars for Easter Seals, and there’s still time to support Easter Seals at your local Friendly’s restaurant this year—their 2014 campaign runs through Sunday, May 11 and features two new elements:
- For a $2 donation to Easter Seals, kids will receive their kids meals served on Friendly’s Frisbees
- Guests can get a discount card good for 10% off all purchases through May 18 for a $1 donation.
So enjoy your ice cream! Now through Mother’s Day, you can support Easter Seals Camp Friendly’s programs every time you visit a Friendly’s Restaurant.
