Snowy weather isn’t the only winter tradition up and down the East Coast — so is Friendly’s Cones for Kids. This is Friendly’s 30th annual Cones for Kids and the campaign has raised more than 26 million for Easter Seals since 1981.

The “cover girls” for this year’s Cones for Kids campaign are Easter Seals campers Emma, Anna and Olivia. The girls visited Friendly’s headquarters in Wilbraham, Mass., earlier this month to kick off the campaign. Check out their interviews on NBC 22 News — they wowed the crowd and capped the day off with, you guessed it, Friendly’s ice cream!

Now through Valentine’s Day, you can support Easter Seals Camp Friendly’s programs for kids with autism and other disabilities every time you visit a Friendly’s Restaurant. Not only that, but you’ll be rewarded with a sheet of Valentine Cards! The Valentine Cards can be redeemed at Friendly’s for 5 free Kids Cones and $5 off any $25 purchase.

Funds raised in Friendly’s Cones for Kids program support Easter Seals Camp Friendly’s in 26 different locations. Camp Friendly’s provides an opportunity for kids with autism and other disabilities to be included in regular camp activities like boating, swimming, archery, ropes courses, horseback riding, hiking and fishing.

So put down the shovels, turn off the snow blower and go ahead and enjoy some ice cream at a Friendly’s restaurant near you. You’ll not only enjoy a tasty treat, but you’ll feel good about supporting essential disability camp programs in your community. Sweet!
