Support Albany Schools: "Last Mondays and Tuesdays"

So long, summer! It’s time to ring in a brand new school year!  The first days of school call for special attention, so treat yourself and the kids to ice cream and/or a night off from cooking!  Mark your calendars for Last Monday and Tuesday and help support Albany’s amazing schools! Please remember to mention SchoolCARE when making your purchase.

If you haven’t tried Mr. Dewie’s Cashew Creamery yet, you’re in for a real treat!  Ice creams are made from cashews and are dairy free, gluten free, soy free, additive free, and made with organic ingredients.  They are located at 1116 Solano Avenue and open from 12 pm – 9 pm. They’ve committed 10% of all sales to SchoolCARE on Monday, August 28, so stop in and say hello!

Restaurant Valparaiso, which has been claimed to be the home of the best empanadas in the Bay Area, has committed 10% from all sales to SchoolCARE on Tuesday, August 29.  Dine in or take out homemade Chilean and Latin American cuisine.  Located at 1403 Solano Avenue, they are open on Tuesday from 11:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.

Did you know that when you purchase an appliance from Galvin Appliance they will donate 1% of the sale to SchoolCARE? It’s true. All you have to do is be an Albany resident and mention SchoolCARE any time of the year. Galvin Appliance is located at 619 San Pablo Avenue.

SchoolCARE thanks you for supporting this local business and for supporting Albany's wonderful schools.
