Eder’s Ice Cream, Montoursville, recently presented the James V. Brown Library with the portion of funds from the sale of “Liberry” ice cream fundraiser that took place during the month of July.
The fundraiser featured a blueberry-flavored “Liberry” ice cream. Eder’s sold a total of 135 gallons of blueberry ice cream or 3,200 scoops and Eder’s owners Tye and Ashley Sheets recently presented the library with a $3,200 check.
“This was such a wonderful way to highlight community organizations and a well-loved family-owned small business,” said Dana Brigandi, Development, Marketing and Public Relations Director. “Tye purchased the blueberries from the Kiwanis Club of Williamsport fundraiser and then donated the proceeds from the blueberry-flavored ice cream to the library. It was a win-win for everyone involved and we are so thankful to Tye and Ashley for doing this.”
Eder’s Ice Cream has been family owned and operated since 1927. All of the ice cream is homemade on the premises.
