The Greater Chambersburg Chamber Foundation recently received $1,500 in matching donations to the Scoop Double Dip Challenge thanks to the generous support of Floor Trader Outlet of Chambersburg.
The Scoop Double Dip Challenge was held mid-July through late August following the Scoop-a-Palooza Ice Cream Trail fundraiser. Community members were encouraged to donate to the Chamber Foundation to support education in Franklin County, and in-turn their donation would receive a one-to-one match; a true double dip!
“We’re grateful to Greg and Kacie Meyers for supporting the Chamber Foundation and helping us raise $3,000 that will support our various educational programs in Franklin County,” said Virginia Harriger, executive director of the Greater Chambersburg Chamber Foundation. “The global pandemic has negatively impacted our normal fundraising efforts, and this donation is critical to keep our programs operating.”
The Scoop Double Dip Challenge and Scoop-a-Palooza Ice Cream Trail combined to form a new style of event this year, in the wake of Covid-19. With thousands of community members unable to gather at Chambersburg Area Senior High School as in previous years, ice-cream-lovers were offered the chance to download a free map and visit participating local ice cream vendors, marking off their progress and entering for chances to win over $2,100 in prizes.
Thank you to every community member who finished the month-long celebration with a gracious donation to the Scoop Double Dip Challenge; your contributions make the work of the Chamber Foundation possible.
