THE TIME WARNER ICE CREAM TRUCK VISITED US ON FRIDAY!

Time Warner, I thought they were a cable company not a ice cream company? Well this summer they are both. Time Warner is sending ice cream trucks around the metropolitan area serving kids all over ice cream for just 1 buck! Great deal! But there is more that dollar is than donated to help local food pantries that distribute food to families in need. Really cool!

Read the article below for more info. Anyway Time Warner Truck came to our North Shore school P.S.373R and everyone had a truly delicious time.

Thank you Time Warner!

July 08, 2008Time Warner Cable is using a favorite summer food to raise money to feed needy residents of Bergen County and elsewhere in the state. NY1’s Samantha Liebman filed the following report.Tuesday’s heat made it an appropriate day for Time Warner Cable, the parent company of NY1, to debut its ice cream truck for the summer in Palisades Park and Englewood. The truck is part of a program to help raise money to provide food for those in need.

“Time Warner Cable created this initiative about five years ago. It’s gone through several incarnations, though,” said Marjorie Barishman, a Time Warner Cable marketing manager. “We started off with doing random acts of kindness, and it developed into scooped ice cream and different kinds of ices. This is our first year selling soft-serve ice cream with sprinkles for just a buck.”

The money raised will go to food pantries in the New York/New Jersey area, like Englewood’s Center for Food Action.

“During the summer, the number of people coming in goes up because children are home from school, they’re not getting their free breakfast and lunch,” said center director Thelma Fedele. “Working parents may have more of a problem because they have to spend more on child care.”

During the summer, food donations also decrease.

“People just don’t think to donate food in the summer,” said Fedele. “Most people think of Thanksgiving, which is great, but people are hungry all year round.”

The Time Warner Cable ice cream truck will be at outdoor events all around Bergen County through August 23, with a goal to raise $10,000.

The truck will also come to events by request. Neighborhood groups, nonprofit organizations and anyone hosting a public event can call 877-SMMR-TWC to schedule a visit by the truck.

  1. I loved the Time Warner Ice Cram Truck !!!!!

    All of the children enjoyed their treat and the staff on the truck were terrific.

  2. What a great way to teach children to think of others. I love the idea that you combine something everyone loves, ice cream in the summer for just a buck, with remembering those in need. Time Warner cable is a great example this summer to all students making us mindful that the working poor need help sometimes. Ice cream and charity a great match

  3. I want to thank Time Warner cable for offering this excellent service to our community. I applaud the fact that all the proceeds from the sale of the ice cream at a very affordable 1 dollar goes to help feed our neighbors in need. Bravo Time Warner for an excellent idea, and I really enjoyed the ice cream as well.

  4. I think that is was nice of Time Warner Cable to give people money for food. By selling ice cream for one dollar kids that are hot in the summer and need a cool snack get one, and people who need food get it. The truck that came to our school the people who served the ice cream were very nice. My computer teacher arranged it. Please come back.
    Time Warner should buy cable from Time Warner because they do good things with profits.

  5. The ice cream was good. Time Warner Cable is doing a good job helping people who need food. The people who are in need I am glad that you are helping them and I hope the food helps and they have a good life. I thank Time Warner for doing this and I hope you come back to P.s.373 R.

  6. Time Warner’s Cable ice cream truck came to our school all because Ms.Broderick arranged it, Ms. Rosen too. I had fun getting the ice cream.
