Carvel® Supports Hurricane Matthew Disaster Relief with Fundraiser and Buy One Get One Free Day in Florida on November 17th

ATLANTA (November 10, 2016) – Carvel… America’s Freshest Ice Cream® will host a special Buy-One-Get-One Free Cone Day at all Florida locations on Thursday, November 17th, 2016. On this day, the soft-serve ice cream pioneer will also be collecting donations for The American Red Cross® that will be used in the continued aid of those effected by Hurricane Matthew. In addition, Carvel® will donate $2,000 to The American Red Cross.

Guests who visit Florida shoppes on November 17th can take advantage of the one day only BOGO Free offer on any size, any flavor soft-serve cup or cone. While picking up their soft-serve ice cream of choice, ice-cream lovers will be invited to pay the love forward by making a contribution to The American Red Cross for Hurricane Matthew victims.

“A large part of the Carvel family is located in the Southeast, so it comes as second nature for us to jump at the chance to help the region out in any way we can after something tragic has occurred,” said Scott Colwell, president of Carvel. “The American Red Cross has been a partner with us for four years and we know these additional funds will be able to help those in need.”

Carvel is proud to have donated more than $120,000 to the American Red Cross. These efforts help support those affected by disasters, which includes disaster preparedness and support for youth throughout the country.”
