11,355 ice cream scoops: $3000 donated to LAEF by Mama’s

Since opening last summer, Mama’s Comfort Food & Cocktails in Los Alamitos committed to donating 25 cents for every scoop of ice cream served to the Los Alamitos Education Foundation (LAEF). LAEF recently learned that Mama’s has served 11,355 scoops of Thirty Ice Cream in that time.

On February 5, Mama’s co-owners Robert Corrigan and Pete Truxaw presented LAEF with a check for $3,000! Proceeds from the ice cream sales amounted to just over $2800, but these generous co-owners insisted on rounding up! LAEF Vice President Brian Leibl accepted the check along with Treasurer Tom Lent, Director Felicia Gonzalez and Executive Director Carrie Logue.

“LAEF is thankful for the continued partnership with Mama’s and their commitment to supporting the kids of the Los Alamitos Unified School District,” said LAEF Executive Director Carrie Logue. With support from community organizations such as Mama’s, LAEF can continue to provide free after-school global language classes, support the salaries of district mental health counselors and continue promoting STEAM education.

LAEF is the non-profit partner of Los Alamitos Unified School District. LAEF enhances educational excellence by providing after-school and summer enrichment programs to children in grades Pre-K to 12. LAEF provides significant funding for STEAM teachers and instruction, as well as igniting new programs and providing valuable resources, to impact all students.
