Your Local Cold Stone

The only thing that rivals our passion for ice cream is our passion for our local communities! It’s very important to us that we give back in positive and rewarding ways — and we're talking about more than just serving up ice cream — we’re talking about getting involved, having a meaningful role in our local communities, supporting good causes, and influencing positive change. We’re currently focused on national and local donations of Cold Stone Creations™ to local heroes on the front lines.

Each Cold Stone Creamery location is locally-owned and operated and our franchisees are committed to serving their communities. Our franchisees are busy giving back in their local communities! If you’re interested in donations at the local level, just contact your local store for more details!

You Can Help Us… one Creation at a time!

In addition to our local and national efforts to deliver ice cream to heroes on the front lines, you can order and donate a Creation™ too! With each purchase of a Creation Donation on our online ordering website, Cold Stone Creamery will donate an Ice Cream Creation to local heroes on the front lines. Donated Creations™ will be distributed to local heroes throughout the country.
