Epworth Ice Cream Scoops Up Google Grant Opportunity


When we learned we would be part of Google Impact Challenge in Columbia we were thrilled.

The award signaled Google’s commitment to making a $50,000 grant to Epworth Children’s Home that would provide Google training and fund employment for local foster youth through our recently-launched Epworth Ice Cream Company.

At the grant announcement on October 2, we were shocked to learn that Google wasn’t done giving yet. With your help we can transform our $50,000 Google grant into a $100,000 grant that will help grow Epworth Ice Cream. Here’s how.

Just visit the Google Impact Challenge Columbia page and vote for Epworth. It’s a one-time favor that’s fast and easy with no log-ins or email address required. Take an extra moment to vote from all of your devices — smart phone, tablet, laptop and desktop computer. Voting ends Tuesday, October 9 at midnight.

Having our nonprofit selected by Google as one of the best ideas to foster economic opportunity in Columbia is a tremendous honor. That we could, with your help, double our impact and provide more foster youth with business experience at the Epworth Ice Cream Company is an incredible gift with lasting value.

If you think Life Should Be Sweet for more foster youth in Columbia, please take a moment to vote for Epworth now.
