One week ago today …

If you can help, we’d love to say thank you

One week ago, on the coldest night of the year, a pipe burst in the Salus apartments on Scott Street. Damage was extensive and 40 people had to leave their homes and be sheltered elsewhere in our city.
The disruption to their lives is incomprehensible as they adjust to this shock and to life in temporary accommodations.
The Salus team has been extraordinary, responding immediately and making sure everyone had somewhere to stay.
But more is needed. The residents have lost so much. And there is so much damage to the Salus building.
In response, Salus has launched a fundraising campaign. The community’s response has been immediate and incredibly caring on so many levels.
We have worked with Salus many times in the past and in this time of need for them and their clients, we want to help do whatever we can to help.
And so, in addition to our own donation, we’d like to offer a small thank you gift to all who have donated to this campaign, or who will be donating. 
We want to do this kind of like a community radio fundraiser. Gave $20? Get an ice cream sandwich. Less than $20? A free topping on your next cone. $100? A free pint. $1000 an ice cream cake of your choice. And if you give $5000 or more, we’ll bring The Merry Truck to your home to serve ice cream to you and 49 of your friends.
In short, we hope you just give. But if a little ice cream nudges you in that direction, then so much the better!
To redeem, simply email with the evidence of your donation, like a receipt or photo. We’ll email you a gift code you can use anytime online or at our shop.

Thank you for letting me know about this, I had no idea and I live just off Scott Street. This is a beautiful example of why small business is integral to our communities.
