For the third consecutive year, Mama’s Comfort Food & Cocktails in Los Alamitos committed to donating 25 cents to the Los Alamitos Education Foundation (LAEF) for every scoop of ice cream served throughout the year. LAEF was thrilled to learn that Mama’s served nearly 10,000 scoops of Thrifty Ice Cream during 2020. On February 24th, Mama’s manager Candice Duvall presented LAEF Executive Director Carrie Logue with a check for $2,500.
“LAEF is beyond grateful for the continued partnership with Mama’s and their commitment to supporting the kids of the Los Alamitos Unified School District,” said Logue.
With support from local businesses like Mama’s Comfort Food and Cocktails, LAEF will continue to support the middle school Well Spaces, which provide mental health and wellness services at Oak and McAuliffe Middle Schools. Donations to LAEF also directly fund teachers for free elementary world language classes, the STEAM initiative and fee waiver scholarships for families in need.
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.
