What could be better than ice cream? Ice cream for a cause.

There’s a new charity in Pike County that will hold it’s first fund-raiser at Milky Moos on Sept. 15, with 40 percent of all ice cream sales going back to the non-profit.

Most folks won’t have heard of Humbled Hearts, Inc., but that will hopefully change after next weekend.

“We’ve all known some one who has died from cancer or another illness,” said the non-profit group’s secretary, Amy Carswell. “And we’ve all watched families struggle, emotionally and financially.”

Humbled Hearts is aimed at helping people who are middle-income – those who aren’t wealthy enough to pay for all their medical care, but still don’t qualify for Medicaid or Medicare. Their mission is to help through financial, physical, psychological and spiritual wellness through a support group.

The group will conduct phase interviews with people who request help, first via email.

“If we can help alleviate any of the pain, that’s our goal,” Carswell said.

Humbled Hearts is just getting on its feet, but Carswell said she hopes to see the group grow to help as many members of the community as possible.

“If we help one or two people, it will be worth it,” Carswell said. “It’s nice to get out there and just try to help.”

Humbled Hearts will garner 40 percent of ice cream sales between 12 and 3 p.m. next Saturday.
