Greenville Avenue Pizza Company is getting ready for its 2nd annual Slices for Supplies event. So while you’re out shopping for back-to-school supplies for your kiddos, pick up an extra item or two.

On Aug. 11, 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.

Greenville Avenue Pizza Company is located at 1923 Greenville.

Last year, 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 GAPCo 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.

Sammy Mandell, the owner of Greenville Avenue Pizza Company and his wife, Molly (a former teacher at Ignacio Zaragoza Elementary School), say they are both products of Dallas Independent School District, which is why the support shown for this event means so much to them.
