If you needed an excuse to treat yourself this weekend, HUB Ice Cream Factory has got you covered! We’re excited to continue our involvement with Diamond Children’s Center by donating 15% of our sales this weekend to the center as part of Tucson’s official Ice Cream Weekend from Friday, July 17 to Sunday, July 19.
The Diamond Children’s Center has held a near and dear place in our hearts. We’ve spent the first Sunday of the month for the last three years visiting the patients and families that are there and bringing sundaes to help break up the days of medical procedures and therapy.
“We wanted to do something that would help lighten the day of the children and parents who are going through an otherwise difficult time. Despite the simplicity and seemingly small gesture of ice cream, it helps break up the weeks or months of the pains of real life with a little bit of joy. Ice cream is such a childhood staple, we like to give them a little bit of childhood normalcy back. Tucson has always been so good to us so we wanted to give back to Tucson consistently; when Diamond Children’s Center asked us if it was something we’d be interested in doing, we leapt at the opportunity. It’s been three and a half years now and we’ve only grown more and more attached to it, our employees who volunteer on those Sundays, the employees at the hospital, but most importantly the families that we just want to say “thank you” too.”

Even Mayor Rothschild weighed in—
We couldn’t be more honored to be involved in this cause while simply doing what we love for the city we love.
You can fulfill your sweet tooth and beat the heat while contributing to an amazing cause all weekend. There you go, you have all the excuses you need! Come and get it while it’s cold!
