Ice cream makes lives better. But it can only do so much. The Milkhouse has a long history of working with organizations throughout the community to have more impact than ice cream can have on its own. Whether it is donating tips, a percentage of profits, or hosting fundraising events, the Milkhouse is always looking for more ways to help others do good.
The Milkhouse Foundation
Started in 2022, the Milkhouse Foundation was established as a 501c3 that provides opportunities to support local organizations with donated funds. Since its inception, the Milkhouse Foundation has partnered with the St. Clair County Dive Team Auxiliary, Spero Pregnancy Care Center, St. Clair County Child Abuse and Neglect Council, Mid City Nutrition, and others.
The primary source of funding for the Milkhouse Foundation is you! Every time you visit us as a customer, you are given the opportunity to donate your tips to the Milkhouse Foundation. Each month from June-September, a different organization is chosen to be the recipient of Milkhouse Foundation funds. From October-May, any funds collected are given to the Milkhouse Foundation to go toward special projects. In the past we have contributed to Harbor Impact Ministries, Port Huron Area School District, and more.
2023 Giving Calendar
For 2023, the summer recipients of Milkhouse Foundation funds are scheduled as follows:
- June: St. Clair County Child Abuse & Neglect Council
- July: St. Clair County Sheriff Volunteer Search & Recover Dive Team Auxiliary
- August: PHHS & PHN Band Boosters
- September: Visiting Nurse Association & Blue Water Hospice
