In recognition of the local first responders who run toward trouble, not away from it, Tootsie’s Ice Cream & More will donate a portion of their sales over the span of three consecutive weekends to area police and fire/rescue departments. It’s Tootsie’s way of thanking all of the men and women who give of their time to make the communities of La Porte City and Vinton great places in which to work and live.

October 13-15: 10% of sales at the Tootsie’s location in Vinton will be donated to the North Benton Ambulance Service. The La Porte City location will donate 10% of their sales to La Porte City Fire/Rescue.

October 20-22: 10% of sales at their respective locations will be donated to the Vinton Fire Department and the La Porte City Fire Department.

October 27-29: 10% of sales at their respective locations will be donated to the Vinton Police Department and the La Porte City Police Department.
