Supporters of the Friendly’s “Cones for Kids” campaign help make it possible for children who are not meeting their developmental milestones to access critical therapy services, including speech, physical and occupational therapies.

No Tricks, Just Treats!

From now through October 31, all Friendly’s Restaurants in Delaware will offer the new Trick-or-Treat coupons for a donation to Easterseals. For each $2 donation, customers receive 5 coupons for free Kids Cones plus a coupon for $5 off a $25 purchase at Friendly’s. Coupons are redeemable from November 1-30. The dollars raised in the campaign will benefit Easterseals Children’s Therapy Services and children like Blaire Marie who is now meeting her milestones thanks to Easterseals therapies.
