Cold Stone Creamery Teams Up With WVU Hospitals

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The Friends Gift Shop at West Virginia University Hospital and Cold Stone Creamery are joining forces.

Starting today, select products from the popular ice cream store will be available in the Friends Gift Shop.

“We began a relationship with Children’s Hospital several years ago, expanded support to the United Wayathon last year, and felt this was the next step in giving back to WVU Hospitals and the community they serve,” said Jeff Spinder, owner of the local Cold Stone store.   

Items available include Grab & Go quarts, petite ice cream cakes, signature cakes, and custom cakes through special order. A variety of other frozen treats will also be available.

“We are excited about the relationship with Cold Stone Creamery,” said Pat Antion, manager of the gift shop. “Offering a great product in a convenient location is another way we can support patients at WVU Hospital.”

Friends of WVU Hospitals is a group of volunteers who support patient care and comfort throughout the hospital. To learn more about the Friends, go to  www.wvuhgift.com, or visit the Gift Shop on the first floor.
