Kate's Kart Ice Cream Social

August 15, 2020

Online & Various Ice Cream Shops

In light of Covid-19 and for the safety of everyone we have redefined our 12th Annual Ice Cream Social fundraiser to the following "distance" events:

  1. Kate's Kart volunteers will distribute individually wrapped ice cream to ER and Pediatric Hospital Staff at all 20 hospitals we serve over the first two weeks of August. As our volunteers have not been in the hospitals, the staff have been distributing books on our behalf. This is just a simple thank you for their continued hard work during these unprecedented times.
  2. “Go Eat Ice Cream” Day on August 15 hosted at various local ice cream shops. Supporters are encouraged to go out for ice cream at one of these locally owned shops, snap and share a photo using #ICSdistanced2020. Donations will be accepted onsite. Locations will be announced closer to the date.
  3. Virtual fundraiser through Facebook and kateskart.org from August 1 - 15, 2020.

There is still time to become a sponsor of this year’s special events. As a sponsor, not only will you be helping to provide ice cream to our dedicated hospital staff, but will also be helping Kate’s Kart continue our mission in local hospitals. During Covid-19, it is even more important that children who are in the hospital are offered books. With limited visitors and contact and everyone in mask, the comforting diversion a book can bring makes this foreign environment a little more normal.

Kate’s Kart is a registered 501(c)(3) public charity, so financial donations are tax deductible.
