Donations At Johnson's, Every Scoop Counts!

Our Grandpa Johnson was not just an ice cream entrepreneur. He was a man of purpose, who gave more than just the smiles that come with ice cream cones. 

In that spirit, Johnson’s Real Ice Cream is proud to donate to the communities we serve. Our goal is to make every scoop count!

We make "Every Scoop Count" in three ways:

  • A longstanding commitment to A Kid Again - every time you buy one of our pints in our stores or in supermarkets, you are helping a kid facing a challenging illness.
  • Silent auction donations for school-related causes
  • Spirit nights where we donate a portion of an evening of sales

If you are a school in one of our communities and have interest in an Ice Cream donation, Silent Auction donation, or Spirit Night, we ask that you provide the following using our online donation form:

  • Your organization's tie to educational causes
  • Some detail about the specific request and the event we would be supporting
  • A copy of your 501 (c) (3) tax status (if applicable)

In addition to responding to these requests, we also support local education in a number of other ways including hosting store visits and participating in school activities.

Please complete the online form by clicking the button below. We kindly ask that requests be submitted at least 6 weeks in advance for full consideration. Upon review, you will be notified by email if your donation has been approved. No phone calls, please.

Message from Johnson's

We want to take the time to update you on our operations. We have determined that we will be temporarily closing our New Albany, Dublin, and Chicago stores effective Sunday, March 22 at 9 pm.

Our Bexley location will remain open and offer carryout, call ahead pick-up, and delivery within 2 miles of the Bexley shop. Right now, the hours are Monday-Saturday 11 am-9 pm and Sunday 2 pm-9 pm.

If you have never stopped by our Bexley shop, it’s our original location filled with nostalgia that opened in 1950. We have opened up the walk-up windows, so you can just come up and get your order from outside.

Starting Wednesday, March 25, we will be offering a special pick-up and carryout hour for senior citizens and other at-risk populations at our Bexley location. The "Senior Only" hour will be Monday-Saturday 10 am-11 am and Sunday 1 pm-2 pm. We are happy to be able to offer this dedicated time.

We also encourage guests to visit our online shop at We can ship our pints anywhere in the US, and you can also order Gift Cards. (We offer free or reduced rate shipping.)

We want to continue serving up happiness as much as possible during this time of strife.
