CHICAGO - (08/05/05) -- Developmentally disabled childrenand adults at the nearby Clearbrook facility were given a coolingoff on these hot summer days by Alliant CU, which donated ninegallons of leftover ice cream Tuesday to the local non-profit. Theice cream was left over from an employee ice cream social that thecredit union refers to as 'Sundaes on Tuesday with Mooney,' a playon the best-selling book 'Tuesdays with Morrie' and the name of thecredit union's President David Mooney. The ice cream social was toreward employees for hard ward and for enduring the ongoing heatwave. But after senior management, attired in tie-dyed Ben andJerry shirts, had scooped 125 sundaes in two hours, event plannersfound themselves with an excess of nine gallons of ice cream, sixcans of whipped cream, chocolate and caramel syrup, cherries and ahalf-dozen containers of rainbow sprinkles.
