The Youngstown Diaspora can connect to Handel's through its 24 locations in Ohio, 4 locations in Pennsylvania, 2 locations in Indiana, 2 locations in Virginia, and 1 location in California.
A new local foundation has been set up, Youngstown's All Heart, to support those in need in the Mahoning Valley - starting with efforts to assist Joe Kaluza, who is now paralyzed from the neck down after a staged robbery.
from an article in the Youngstown Vindicator:
“Handel’s is a Youngstown institution, so I said, ‘We have to help,’” said Fisher, who decided to make Kaluza the first benefactor of efforts by the foundation.
A new flavor of ice cream, appropriately called “Youngstown’s All Heart,” will be available Friday at all local Handel’s locations.
Youngstown’s All Heart is vanilla ice cream with raspberry ripple and raspberry-filled chocolate hearts.
A portion of every purchase of a pint or a quart of any flavor of ice cream will go toward Kaluza’s medical bills.
The Youngstown’s All Heart foundation is also funded by the sale of red message bracelets for $2. They are inscribed: “Do more ... be more.”
“This isn’t just about Joe, it’s about everyone in Youngstown,” said Fisher.
