FENTONS IS AN ACTIVE PARTICIPANT IN THE COMMUNITY.
Learn about current events at Fentons Creamery and our community partnership in our Community!
Fentons Creamery is an active participant in many different community events in Alameda & Solano Counties. Whether it is donating gift cards or ice cream to local fundraisers, collecting proceeds from our monthly Myrtle’s special sundae for local charities and non-profits or attending fundraising events to sample our ice cream, we do this all with Community Partnerships in mind. We gift volunteer time and tens of thousands of dollars every year.
We do this in place of spending money on advertising. It is our belief that we must support the Community that we are part of the best we can. And we do so with groups like Lend A Hand Foundation, Girls, Inc., Solano Library Foundation, the Oakland Zoo, Solano Kids Insurance Program, Boys & Girls Club, Oakland Parks & Rec., Oakland Firefighters Random Acts of Kindness, and many more!
Most months at Fentons, we designate a local non-profit organization in our immediate community to receive proceeds from the sales of our Myrtle’s Monthly Sundae Special. With so many worthy local causes, how do we choose? Good question!
For one month out of every year we run a Golden Choice Sundae and ask our patrons to cast a “golden ticket” ballot for the local non-profit of their choice.
At the end of the month, we award the non-profit with the most votes the designated proceeds from our Myrtle’s Monthly Sundae Special. We use the information that we’ve gathered from our patrons as a guide for our monthly giving throughout the year.
