You’ve asked and envied and the moment has finally come: thanks to our upstairs neighbors, Evangalist, you can join us on the rooftop for a Giving Day Party this Thursday!
What’s a Giving Day Party? Our 2017 nonprofit partner, The Net FW, is hosting a party to celebrate donations on North Texas Giving Day. We’ll have ice cream, DJ WayGOOD, drinks, food, and all the good vibes you can handle.
If you can’t make the party, you can give online here. Just select “The Net FW” as your organization. Don’t forget to ask your employer in advance if they will match your donations. Bonus: everything The Net receives on Thursday will be doubled up to $10,000. The Net’s mission is to be the “safety net” for the local homeless and those in poverty by building relationships and seeking to restore their dignity.
Our partnership with The Net is a triple-scoop cone:
1) A portion of our sales from every scoop of Beans in 2017 goes directly to The Net.
2) During our birthday month, we asked you to celebrate with us by bringing flashlights and new shoes for the homeless.
3) We’ve hosted quarterly service days so our employees can volunteer at The Net: folding clothes, playing with refugee children, and organizing their store.
This last one is super important to us - one of our core values is “Be humble and serve.” To us, service goes beyond customers and extends to our community. For a lot of our employees, scooping at MELT is their first job, and we love being able to show them that working can be about more than a paycheck.
One of our team members, Mary Beavers, said it best, “We serve people every day. But we do it to earn income or because we love ice cream. The best part about volunteering is that not only do I feel I am making an impact on my community, I am also getting to know my fellow employees on a very real level. Plus, I've always wanted to be a part of a company that is involved in the community and gives back.”
Please join us Thursday on the rooftop for our Giving Day Party. We believe treats can change your day and your day change the world. And every time you grab a scoop of Beans or donate to The Net, you’re changing the world for one of your neighbors.
