Free ice cream at Dairy Queen! It’s for a good cause

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Bundle up and grab yourself some ice cream … it’s for a good cause.

With large portions of the country preparing for heavy snow, severe storms or tornadoes on Tuesday, the first day of spring, Dairy Queen is handing out <a target=”&mdash;blank” href=”https://twitter.com/DairyQueen/status/976035699035123712″>free ice cream</a> cones.

It is the fourth consecutive year that the Minneapolis chain has raised money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. In exchange for a vanilla ice cream cone, people are asked to make a donation to the non-profit organization that raises money for medical research and children’s hospitals.

Dairy Queen contributed nearly $300,000 from the event last year.
