Thanks for your Friendly-ness

Remember my Friendly’s blog post back in February? The one where I asked you to put down your shovels and head over to Friendly’s before it started snowing again?!

Support Easter Seals Camp Friendly’s programs for kids at any Friendly’s Restaurant and 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.

Well, five months and 100 degrees later, I’m here to thank you for your generosity during that very harsh winter season — Friendly Ice Cream Corporation recently announced that its company-wide Cones for Kids campaign raised nearly $750,000 for Easter Seals Camp Friendly’s! Funds raised through Friendly’s successful 2010 Cones for Kids campaign help kids with autism and other disabilities enjoy a total of 30 Easter Seals Camp Friendly’s programs and 3 camperships. Easter Seals Camp Friendly’s makes 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 is celebrating its 75th anniversary this month as well as marking the 29th year of supporting Easter Seals through Cones for Kids. Happy anniversary, Friendly’s! And happy anniversary, Cones for Kids!
