As we enter the new year, we at Izzy’s are reflecting on the love our community shows us. Even after the winter sets in, people still come from far and wide for a taste of our handmade ice cream. We’re grateful for that, and we want to pay it forward, so we’ll once again be reviving our “13 Days of Giving” fundraiser. Our doors will be open to all, and we’ll be serving scoops for some great causes!
This year, we’ve once again assembled a diverse group of non-profit organizations listed below that help make our Twin Cities a phenomenal place to live. Between February 1st and 13th, our stores will be featuring a different non-profit organization each day, and $2 of each single scoop sold will benefit that organization. Our retail locations will have some information about the causes, so that our customers can get as excited as we are about where their donations are going. We’ll also be welcoming customers to make additional donations beyond the proceeds from a purchase.
To inaugurate our “13 Days of Giving” this year, we’re running an open collection throughout the month of January. Near the register at both of our retail locations, we have boxes for small donations. That money will be split evenly between all our participating organizations, and Izzy’s will match them up to $1000 in each location. Plus, while supplies last, we’re making our Izzy’s Classic Logo t-shirts available as “name your price”– any amount will buy a shirt, minimum $1, with the proceeds going towards the open collection. This way we can get some spare change working for good, and kick off our “13 Days” a little early.
Throughout the year, Izzy’s feels the love. We’re privileged to be able to serve both our Saint Paul and Minneapolis communities as we begin our sixteenth year. In the next few weeks, we hope our neighbors will join us to share the love, and give back to the community we call home. Our “13 Days of Giving” is the perfect opportunity for people to come enjoy our ice cream while supporting a diverse group of Minnesota non-profits, so we hope to see everyone in our stores this winter!
