Good news for ice cream lovers

Camp Friendly’s lets kids be kids

by Pamela Langone

Derek is just one of many kids who benefits from the incredible Camp Friendly’s experience at Easter Seals New Hampshire. Derek is 15 years old and has autism. Camp has given Derek the invaluable opportunity to just be a kid.

While at camp, Derek has been able to enjoy all kinds of camp experiences: swimming, dancing, group activities and LOTS more. Most importantly, Derek has made friends at camp. He smiles, and his self-confidence has grown.

All this month, you and your family can help families like Derek’s. From now until October 31, the Friendly Ice Cream Corporation will support Easter Seals Camp Friendly’s through its Halloween Cones for Kids Campaign. Participating Friendly’s restaurants will offer Halloween Certificates good for free kid’s cones as a thank you gift to restaurant guests who make a $1 donation to Easter Seals. Donations will support Easter Seals Camp Friendly’s programs like the one Derek attends in New Hampshire.

Thank you for your support!
