How to Scoop Ice Cream to Help Hangers The EVSC Student Resource
For a decade ice cream has helped one of our favorite charity organizations to raise money and that fundraising continues in 2021, but with a twist!
For the first 8 years, Hangers hosted Celebrity Scoop Nights where the community could tip local celebrities for scooping and serving them ice cream. All of the tips then went to Hangers to help them continue their mission of helping students in need within, the EVSC. In 2020, Hangers made the annual event virtual because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
For 2021, and the 10th year of scooping ice cream, everyone is a celebrity! Hangers has extended the invitation to the public to scoop for a cause! This year's scoop event will be virtual and it's incredibly easy to participate. Hangers share the how-to instructions on their Facebook page,

Every year, Hangers serves about 3,000 students within the EVSC. Each student in need receives approximately $150 in new and gently used clothes, shoes, socks, underwear, winter coats, and gloves. Students are often referred to the program by teachers and staff, as well as counselors, social workers principals and school nurses. Students are brought into the Hangers retail space which is designed to mimic the feel of shopping in a retail store with racks and shelves full of clothes and shoes. In the spring, Hangers even provides prom dresses to students who may need one.
