Opelika, Ala. (EETV) - As Hurricane Irma bares down on the state of Florida, the smallest evacuees in our area are finding comfort in an unusual place.

O-Town ice cream in Opelika took to twitter inviting visiting families to come by their store to give their children a free Ice cream.

"I can only imagine how stressful it is to have to evacuate with your entire family knowing that your home could possibly be in ruins when you return." said Angela George, owner of O-Town Ice Cream, "We are hoping to alleviate stress for those that are staying in the Opelika/ Auburn area by giving them just a little bit of joy with their kids or pups with a free ice cream."

One woman headed to Opelika responded to the tweet with an unusual request, a sweet treat for her fur babies.

The store has seen a huge response since the tweet was posted, many thanking them for their kindness.
