Sasquatch Shaved Ice is a nonprofit snow cone stand located in the Plaza District of Oklahoma City. Our mission is to employlow-income teens from the Classen Ten-Penn neighborhood and empower them to achieve their educational and career goals.
Along with job training, each Sasquatch Shaved Ice employee gets a checking and savings account with Oklahoma Employees Credit Union and takes part in a program that includes monthly financial literacy classes and trainings to prepare them for higher education. Additionally, Sasquatch Shaved Ice uses the profits from the business to match dollar-for-dollar what their employees save towards their higher education and career goals. This teaches our teens responsible saving and spending habits that will help them break the cycle of poverty and set them on a path to financial stability and long-term success.
