Ice Cream Jubilee, which has locations in Logan Circle and Yards Park, said it will hand over a “winter seasonal” milkshake to every patron who gives at least $5 to 826DC, a nonprofit focused on teaching kids about writing.

Patrons can choose from five ice cream flavors to create a seasonal shake. Those flavors include “boozy eggnog,” “maple rye pecan” and “pumpkin honeycomb.”

“We love encouraging people to act on their creativity, try new things, and even explore inventing their own flavor combinations,” said Ice Cream Jubilee founder Victoria Lai in a statement. “Ice Cream Jubilee stands behind 826DC’s mission to support kids’ creative writing skills and help them imagine and create a more magical world.”
