Graduates Scooping Up Some Tasty Treats

Washington, D.C. (Tuesday, June 16, 2020) – Nobody would debate the reality that this indeed has been a challenging year for many.  Most graduates have had there special day completely altered.  Whether it’s the little ones going from Pre-K to kindergarten or the college senior preparing for the real world, big plans of graduation ceremonies were severely hampered this year by the coronavirus pandemic.

“Here’s the Scoop,” a black owned ice cream parlor in the District of Columbia in partnership with WHUR, sought to put some smiles on the faces of those graduates.  Here’s the Scoop dished out free ice cream today to the Class of 2020.  Using social distancing guidelines, owner Karin Sellers packed up dozens of individual cups of ice cream and handed them out to students as they drove by.

“It’s our small way of letting them know we are proud of them and we wanted to give back to the community even in the midst of this pandemic,” said Sellers.  Dressed in their school colors and with cars decked out in school spirit, dozens of youth and their parents took advantage of the free treats.  “I love ice cream and I especially love it even more when it’s free,” said one student.

WHUR was happy to be on the scene to play music and make the giveaway fun and festive for all.  Congratulations to the Class of 2020.  You DID IT!!!
