Ice cream is the quintessential summer treat. In fact, summer isn't summer without it.

Now, when you treat the kids to their favorite flavor, you can also give your community a boost. During the month of August, donate $1 or more when you stop in to a Baskin-Robbins and you'll be helping charities that support sick and hungry kids. It’s all part of the Community Cones program, sponsored by The Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation.

When you donate, you'll receive three coupons for your next visit to Baskin-Robbins beginning in September.
