On Wednesday December 13th, our CEO (and Mary’s Grandson) presented $47,778 to the Community team of Redwood Credit Union at their corporate office in Santa Rosa.
The donation was a result of November fundraisers held on the first three Tuesdays. 15% of all sales from all 19 locations were donated.
“It was heartbreaking to witness such wide spread devastation across so many of our communities, we knew we needed to do make a meaningful contribution towards helping people recover.’” Says Vince Albano, Mary’s Grandson and CEO of Mary’s Pizza Shack. “Our guests are an extension of our family. I watched from a young age as my Nonny Mary always did what she could to give back. She established this philosophy from the beginning. We will continue to be there for our guests and the community during these unprecedented times”.
In addition to the November fundraisers, Mary’s Pizza Shack will donate $5 for every $50 a guest spends on gift cards and they will also receive $10 in Mary’s Money. This will continue to run through 12/31/17 to maximize additional donations.
These past few weeks have been challenging to witness such devastation in our beloved communities. We have watched as our families, friends, neighbors and so many others have lost everything. Community has always been the backbone of Mary’s Pizza Shack and it made immediate sense to try and figure out a way to help those in need in our neighborhoods.
In an effort to raise funds for the North Bay Fire Relief, Mary’s Pizza Shack will be holding fundraisers at ALL 19 LOCATIONS on the first three Tuesdays in November (11/7, 11/14, 11/21). 15% of all sales will go directly to the North Bay Fire Relief Fund at Redwood Credit Union. That means In House, Take Out/Delivery & Online!
Also during November & December, the 11 Sonoma County Mary’s locations will have barrels to collect non perishable items that will be donated to the Redwood Empire Food Bank.
