While many school districts are deciding how to re-open this school year, students and teachers alike are still in need of supplies. Greenville Avenue Pizza Company is helping bring supplies to elementary school classrooms.

On Aug. 11, GAPCo will host its annual Slices for Supplies event. Customers can bring supplies to the GAPCo locations on Peavy Road or Greenville Avenue in exchange for a slice of pizza. 

Supplies will go to Ignacio Zaragoza and Truett elementary schools. Those who wish to make donations can do so by purchasing an item from either school’s Amazon wishlist and present a receipt at GAPCo on Aug. 11 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. They can also physically bring supplies to GAPCo on that day and place their order from 5-8 p.m.

Greenville Avenue Pizza Company is located at 1923 Greenville Ave. and 1145 Peavy Road.

Dallas ISD is expected to begin classes Sept. 8.
