The Friendly’s 32nd annual ‘Cones for Kids’ campaign for Easter Seals is happening at the Sayville Friendly's restaurant now through February 28.
Since 1981, Friendly’s employees and customers have joined together to raise funds for children and adults living with autism and other special needs. Over the past 10 years, Long Island and Hudson Valley New York Friendly’s guests have generously donated more than $1 million to Easter Seals New York.
Each restaurant guest who makes a $5 donation to Easter Seals New York will receive a coupon book including 6 coupons, a $33 value.
All proceeds from the Cones for Kids initiative go towards supporting programs in New York.
Thanks in large part to the proceeds raised by J&B Restaurant Partners, J&B Restaurant Partners Child Development Center in Sayville, established in the spring of 2012, will provide pre-school students with high-quality early education services in a caring and safe environment.
The opening of this center is the culmination of years of support from restaurant guests, Friendly’s employees, donors of Easter Seals New York and the tireless commitment of the board members.
“J&B Restaurant Partners continue to change the lives of thousands of individuals with disabilities through their Cones for Kids initiative and assist us in providing services to children and adults whose needs had previously gone unmet,” commented John W. McGrath, Executive Director of Easter Seals New York.
