Ben & Jerry’s of Canton will be celebrating Free Cone Day to thank their customers for their patronage, and to raise money and awareness in support of the Town of Canton Volunteer Fire & EMS Department.
Volunteer fire and EMS members will be scooping ice cream, giving fire truck and ambulance tours and providing information about opportunities in the fire service.
Last year, Ben & Jerry’s of Canton distributed over 4,000 servings of their super premium ice cream during Free Cone Day. In return, customers were encouraged to make a donation to the Town of Canton Volunteer Fire & EMS Department.
In 2012, these donations totaled nearly $2,000.00. Since 2005, over $13,400.00 in donations have been raised for the Department through Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Days.
100% of all donations are put towards training and equipment for Canton’s volunteer firefighters and EMTs.
