At the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally this year make sure to stop by the AARP booth to get free ice cream, which in turn is a donation for a Veterans’ cause.

“We’re giving away free ice cream or popsicles.” says Erik Gaikowski, State Director for AARP South Dakota. “Every time we give away an ice cream or popsicle, we donate $1 to Fisher House. Fisher House is a home for veterans that are going through medical treatment at about 29 medical facilities across the country.”

The Fisher House Foundation since 1990 has assisted over 300,000 veteran families while their loved ones get care.

Gaikowski says about 8,000 people came to AARP’s booth last year. The Rally regularly draws nearly a half million people annually.
