“Ice cream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!” This summer, Sobeys Inc. is celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday (and Sobey’s 110th) with a community giving campaign that pairs ice cream and helping kids. It’s a match made in heaven!
On Saturday, June 24, visit your local Sobeys, Safeway, or IGA store and make a $2 donation for a cold ice cream treat that’ll warm your heart!
100% of the funds raised from Canada Screams for Ice Cream on June 24 will go to more than 100 local youth-focused charities across Western Canada providing healthy meals and snacks for kids. Sobeys will match all the donations raised, to a total of $100,000.
Your donation will stay in your community and go towards helping kids right in your area. Funds raised in Vancouver will be donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs of South Coast BC. Having used their services myself as a teenager, I can’t think of a better cause to donate to!

But that’s not all! Canada Screams for Ice Cream also kicks off the launch of Sobeys’ Kids Paying-It-Forward program. 150 kids from participating charities will each receive $500 in gift cards to donate to a community group that has helped their family, friends, or neighbours. That’s $75,000 in donations going towards helping Canadian charities shape future leaders and caring Canadians!
Mark your calendar for June 24 and bring the whole family down to enjoy a cool treat and help support kids in your community at the same time!
