Cold Stone and local businesses continue to support three Eagle Point families
MEDFORD, Ore. —
Today Cold Stone Creamery is showing their support to the families of Luciana Tellez, Giselle Montano and Esmeralda Nava who tragically passed away in a wrong way driver accident last Saturday.
Cold Stone store owner Blair Sundell says one of his former employees was friends with the three high school seniors, sand knew he had to get involved any way he could.
"First thing that comes to mind is, is there a GoFundMe or some way that you can help support them with a donation and then we thought really the best way we can do this is to leverage community support and be a part of that by using our store to do so," said Sundell.
And Cold Stone's support is contagious.
The construction company S+B James, working on the Medford Center renovations, is also joining in to help.
"So we asked them what is the busiest hour you can pick and we'll cover the proceeds for that hour. That's what we've decided to do so between 5 and 6p.m. today is going to be the hour that was chosen," said Josh Geyer, the S+B James project manager.
Cold Stone will be open until 10p.m. and all proceeds made Thursday will go directly to the Tellez, Montano and Nava families.
Sundell says Cold Stone is hoping to raise $3,000, which would be the most ice cream the store has ever sold.
