If there is one thing that you need to put on your calendar to do this Saturday, June 24th it’s the Canada Screams for Ice Cream event.
Taking place at a Sobeys, Safeway, or IGA in your community across Western Canada every $2 donation gets you an Ice Cream
100% of the money raised at the Canada Screams for Ice Cream events will go to youth-based organizations helping to provide snacks and meals for kids in communities across Western Canada.
Did you know 1 in 6 kids go hungry in Canada? In addition to food banks, youth organizations are also seeing a rise in kids coming to their programs hungry – at schools, clubs and shelters.
Sobeys will also be matching the funds raised up to $100,000 and here in Edmonton funds will be donated to Youth Empowerment and Support Services (YESS).
Canada Screams for Ice Cream + Kids Paying-it-Forward
June 24th will also mark the launch of the new Sobeys Kids Paying-it-Forward program. 150 kids from participating charities across Western Canda will receive $500 in Sobeys, Safeway and IGA gift cards to donate to a community group that has helped their family, friends or neighbors.
A total of $75,000 will be donated all while recognizing these mini-role models and empowering them to make better food possible in their community.
