About Us

What is Cool Treats For Charity?

Cool Treats For Charity is a frozen treat mobile pushcart business owned and established in 2013 by Kristen Short and operated by The Short Family in Oxford Hills, Maine.  We are licensed and insured in the State of Maine.  Celebrating our fifth year "Serving Up Hope...Family Style!"

From our pushcart we take donations for frozen treat items such as Magnum bars, Klondike bars and sandwiches, Haagen-Dazs bars, Toll House Cookie ice cream sandwiches, Outshine fruit bars, Healthy Choice fudge bars, and Fla-Vor-Ice popsicles.  We have a snack bar with chips, crackers, candy, granola bars and trail mix.  We also have Poland Spring water and a Keurig coffee service and all the fixings for great cups of coffee, tea and hot cocoa.

Invite Us To Your Event - Proceeds Benefit Charity

Invite Cool Treats For Charity to your event that you'd like refreshments served at.  We provide the treats and friendly service, and you provide the guests.  Items range in suggested donation prices of $0.25 to $2.00.  Proceeds from the sale of our frozen treats, snacks and beverages benefit charity.  Charities we have made donations to include cancer support charities Short Folks For Hope Foundation (founded by Kristen Short in 2012), Dempsey Center, Cancer Resource Center of Western Maine, Androscoggin Hospice House, American Cancer Society/Relay for Life, and other local charities like Community of the Resurrection, Responsible Pet Care, Camp Sunshine at Sebago Lake, fundraisers for families with loved ones going through cancer treatment, and more.   Since our first event in the summer of 2013, Cool Treats For Charity has donated over $5,000 to local charities.  Allie Short was the Dempsey Challenge Top Youth Fundraiser in 2013.
