HOLLAND, MI – Forget an apple, you can get free ice cream for the special teacher in your life.
Hudsonville Ice Cream is offering ice cream deliveries to teachers who are nominated through the Michigan-based creamery’s Random Acts of Ice Cream program. Selected nominees will receive a box full of ice cream pints delivered directly to their doorstep.
“The intent of our Random Acts of Ice Cream program is to show gratitude and bring joy to someone’s day, and with the new school year starting we wanted to acknowledge the dedication of teachers and other education staff,” said Rachel Messingschlager of Hudsonville Ice Cream.
“We all have teachers and educational role models to thank for shaping our lives, and this year educators are going above and beyond to ensure our children can learn and grow, whether it’s virtually or in the classroom. Sending a box of ice cream is something small we can do to help make their days a little sweeter while they are doing so much to inspire the next generation.”
Nominations be submitted at www.hudsonvilleicecream.com/random-acts, and Hudsonville plans to ship boxes out to a number of selected recipients each week.
Nominators can share why the teacher or other education professional (including cafeteria workers, librarians, bus drivers and more) should receive a special ice cream delivery during this unusual year. Hudsonville Ice Cream will send a box of its classic pint flavors to selected nominees, no purchase required.
Random Acts of Ice Cream returned earlier this year to recognize healthcare heroes and other frontline workers. To date, Hudsonville has shipped hundreds of boxes to more than 20 states.
The family-owned company chose to recognize teachers and support staff aligned with the start of the school year and will continue the program through 2020, according to a news release.
