Dallas, TX August 11, 2014 — On Monday, August 11, 2014 Greenville Avenue Pizza Company (1923 Greenville Avenue) will host their 2nd annual “Slices for Supplies” event from 5 p.m.-8 p.m. Customers that bring at least one school supply item will receive one free slice of cheese pizza with one additional topping.
Last year, an outstanding five, 30-gallon storage boxes of school supplies were collected. The supplies go directly to the teachers at DISD school, Ignacio Zaragoza Elementary.
In addition to supplies, Greenville Avenue Pizza Company will be collecting 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 ($100 of that coming from their neighbors at HG Sply Co.).
In January, that money was given to Zaragoza and GAPC matched what was collected, for a total of $374. This year, they are hoping to collect over double the amount, as monetary donations will be accepted all week long.
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 will also tie in with the Lowest Greenville Collective’s “52 Weeks of Giving” initiative with other businesses in the neighborhood.
