February has arrived, bringing with it thoughts of love, expression, and indulgence. Our decadent Chocolate Raspberry Truffle reflects this season of love in its flavor both dark and bright, rich and juicy. And this month, enjoying the Chocolate Raspberry Truffle helps to celebrate the love of our Community by supporting the Western North Carolina Advocacy League. WNCAL is a fledgling non-profit, now in its second year of work, which seeks to advocate for the those in our community who might be overlooked. Founded on the belief that a community should serve itself by caring for its citizens directly, WNC Advocacy League helps the community advocate for itself by connecting community members in need with neighbors and services.
Ultimate Ice Cream Company is honored to help spread the word about the mission of WNC Advocacy League and to support their work. All month long, you can stop by either shop to delight in the incomparable Chocolate Raspberry Truffle and, in doing so, help those around you.
Here's a little more info about the Western North Carolina Advocacy League:
WNCAL has on-staff legal advocates, mental health specialists, geriatric specialists, community liaisons, intake specialists, etc. The service could be as simple as seeing to it that someone has transportation to important appointments, or an elders trash is taken out, or something like a person who may lose their home because their taxes are in arrears, or the property is in need of a major rehab. WNCAL helps find help. They connect neighbors and businesses to each other and the most vulnerable in our community. WNCAL works with Eblen Charities, Pisgah Legal Services, DSS and others as needed to ensure that our community members aren't falling through the cracks, but being looked after and cared for, with compassion.
