Support Berated Polar Cave Employee's College Fund

Donation protected
An employee of my small hometown ice cream shop, Polar Cave Ice Cream Parlour, quit on the first day of reopening after being verbally harassed by frustrated guests.  She is a 17-year-old young lady who has worked for me for the past three years and has always been one of the most hardworking, kindhearted employees and a favourite of many of our regulars.   This young lady was planning to work as much as possible to save money for college in the fall.

This past Friday, our opening night of the year, she was met with an unyielding verbal assault with some of the most vulgar and disgusting words hurled at her, these shouldn't be heard in a men's locker room, never mind directed to a teenager!  In spite of this, she continued to work until the last ice cream was served and then turned in her apron.  Asked why she didn't tell me sooner of this behaviour, she simply said she didn't want to disappoint me or our loyal fans.

Today I have been inundated with calls and messages asking if they could send money or what could be done to her.  One kind gentleman offered to pay her salary until she came back or found a new job.

So, as a result of all these offers, it seems like this is the way to go.  All donations, no matter how small, will make a difference.   All funds will go directly to her College Fund.

No one deserves this kind of abuse, especially a 17-year-old young girl, in a time when we as a country should stand united.
