ROWAN has been a grateful recipient of funding from Little Man Ice Cream’s Scoop for Scoop program since 2014. In the past, we used this money to help fund our Saturday food program which provided meals for 130 children on Saturdays, as well as weekly bags of food for 100 families in our Ugandan community. Starting in 2021, all the funding we receive from the Scoop for Scoop program will go toward our learning center goal of providing food to children who are home due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In using his father’s nickname as the business name, Paul Tamburello, the founder of Little Man Ice Cream, set the tone for a business run with heart and one that strives to truly make a difference for good. We at ROWAN are incredibly grateful for Little Man Ice Cream and for the support the funding from their Scoop for Scoop program provides.
