Ice Cream, Coffee, & Music: Local businesses team up for 5th annual holiday giveback campaign

We are truly fortunate to collaborate once again with three local treasures this Christmas season. Monogram Coffee, Made by Marcus, and artist Ellen Doty are all back for a 4th annual holiday giveback campaign. Supporting those experiencing homelessness in Calgary and Edmonton, we are excited to team up and come together as a community.

“I can never say enough about how meaningful this collaboration is to all of us,” says Doty. “It brings together local musicians and local businesses to support those that truly need it during the holiday season."

How does it work? Essentially by eating ice cream and drinking coffee!

For each purchase, portions will be donated to those who are experiencing homelessness and poverty in our city:

Additionally, each bag of coffee will also come with a free download of the new Ellen Doty single, Mittens, written by Doty and Alberta artist Wyatt C. Louis.

Snuggle up this Christmas with a warm cup of smooth and chocolatey Guatemalan roast coffee, or a bowl of espresso ice cream, swirled with homemade speculoos cookie butter. Feel good (on the inside and outside) knowing you have made an impact this season

The cherry on top

Our generous friends at ATB Financial will be matching contributions to double the final total raised by these small businesses!

Thank you to everyone involved in this wonderful seasonal collaboration. This year has been challenging – for everyone – and with the support from awesome local businesses, together we will help and serve so many in their hour of need.
