District 6 City Councilor Matt O'Malley is giving any Boston kids a $5 gift certificate to J.P. Licks if they shovels out a fire hydrant and a parent posts before and after photos.
While O'Malley represents only a portion of the city -- including Jamaica Plain -- he said the offer is open to all Boston kids. He announced the offer via social media Sunday, and children quickly got out their shovels -- why wouldn't they for free ice cream?!
Attn kids of Boston: Shovel out a fire hydrant & have your parents post a before/after pic. I'll send you a $5 gift certificate to @jplicks.
