Dallas, TX August 11, 2014 — On Monday, August 11, 2014 Greenville Avenue Pizza Company (1923 Greenville Avenue) hosted their 2nd annual “Slices for Supplies” event from 5:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. Customers that brought at least one school supply item received one free slice of cheese pizza with one additional topping.
This year, GAPC gave away over 60 slices of pizza and collected 4 extra large boxes of school supplies. The supplies go directly to the teachers at DISD school, Ignacio Zaragoza Elementary.
In addition to supplies, Greenville Avenue Pizza Company collected monetary donations from customers to purchase supplies that teachers and students will need at the beginning of the second semester of school. Last year, $187 was collected. This year, the goal was to double that.
Thanks to extremely generous donations of $150 from HG Sply Co., The Blind Butcher, and Nandina’s, as well as $100 collected from customers in attendance, GAPC raised $550. In January, the money will be given to Zaragoza and GAPC will match what was collected, for a total of $1,100.
The owner of Greenville Avenue Pizza Company and his wife (a former teacher at Zaragoza) are both products of Dallas Independent School District. The support shown for this event means so much to them. This event also tied in with the Lowest Greenville Collective’s “52 Weeks of Giving” initiative with other businesses in the neighborhood.
