Ben & Jerry's kicks off summer with two new flavors: Berry Voluntary and Brownie Chew Gooder, which you'll only find at another big-box retailer, Target. And if the names didn't give it away, this partnership helps foster volunteerism. You can visit Scoop It Forward to identify volunteering opportunities in your local community.
