Cool Treats For Charity is a nonprofit 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 ninth 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, Hershey Ice Cream products, Outshine fruit bars, Healthy Choice fudge bars, and Fla-Vor-Ice popsicles. We also have Poland Spring water and depending on the event, we also have a coffee, tea and hot chocolate service available, as well as a snack bar with fresh popped popcorn.
Here's how it works:
(1) Invite Cool Treats For Charity to your event that you'd like refreshments served at. We provide the treats and friendly service, and your event patrons make donations for treats.
(2) Hire Cool Treats For Charity for your event, and we'll provide the treats and friendly service free for your patrons. Your organization will make a donation for either the projected number of treats to be dispensed at the event, or an actual number of treats dispensed at the event, plus a small fee to assist with our charity's insurance and travel cost for the event. (Patrons may still make additional donations in our cart's donation bin if they wish.)
Proceeds benefit local charity, including 501(c)(3) cancer support charity Short Folks For Hope Foundation of South Paris, Maine. Over that years we have made donations to numerous other local charities, including Dempsey Center, Cancer Resource Center of Western Maine, Androscoggin Hospice House, American Cancer Society/Relay for Life, Team Hailey Hugs, Community of the Resurrection, Responsible Pet Care, Camp Sunshine at Sebago Lake, etc., and have donated to fundraisers for families with loved ones going through cancer treatment. Since our first event in the summer of 2013, Cool Treats For Charity has raised over $6,000 to local charity. Allie Short was the Dempsey Challenge Top Youth Fundraiser in 2013.
