On Tuesday April 9, Ben & Jerry’s across the nation will host its annual Free Cone Day. From noon to 8 p.m. at the Old Town Ben & Jerry’s located at 103 South Union St., Carpenter’s Shelter will be collecting donations. All proceeds further Carpenter’s Shelter’s work in the community, serving homeless and formerly homeless men, women and children. The ice cream is free but all donations benefit Carpenter’s Shelter.
From 4-6 p.m., guest scoopers will be dishing out ice cream alongside the Carpenter’s staff. Guests will include: U.S. Rep. Jim Moran, Kerry Donley, David Speck and Sheriff Dana Lawhorne.
