Mayfield gives away 10,000 scoops of ice cream in Charlotte

For every scoop of ice cream Mayfield gave away, it is donating $1 to the Salvation Army of Charlotte.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Mayfield Creamery gave away free ice cream cones in Uptown Charlotte Thursday while helping the Salvation Army. 

With afternoon highs in the mid-to-upper 90s in the forecast, plus the heat index making it feel like over 100 degrees, what better way to beat the sweltering summer heat than an ice cream cone? 

Mayfield and Moose Tracks was at the corner of Trade Street and Tryon Street from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. Thursday, June 16, to give out 10,000 scoops of free ice cream. For every scoop that's given away, Mayfield will be donating $1 to the Salvation Army and its mission to improve lives in the Charlotte area.
