Scoops of Joy hosts soft opening at Bowling Green Ballpark

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Scoops of Joy unveiled a mission with their soft opening on Saturday.

The ice cream shop is partnering with the Buddy House to help teach independence. Employees learn to make ice cream themselves, which is a skill they can take home.

Stephanie Morton, executive director of Down Syndrome of South Central Kentucky, said, “Scoops of joy is our way to help our guys become self advocates, earning a wage to help support themselves out in the community, but also to bring joy out for everyone through our smiles and just be a great part of the community.”

In addition, Morton added they are trying to raise funds for a food truck in hopes of attending events.

“Down Syndrome of South Central Kentucky supports all individuals with Down’s syndrome of all ages. And we just love being a part of the community,” said Morton.
