Today, June 21st, both locations of Vinnie’s Pizzeria in Greenpoint (253 Nassau Ave) and Williamsburg (148 Bedford Ave) will be making a special heart-shaped “pizza on pizza” slice for a cause that’s close to their, well, hearts. 100% of the proceeds from the heart pizza sold today will go to charities helping families separated at U.S. borders. Yesterday, after political pressure and anger from citizens across the country, Trump signed an order to keep families together by detaining them together after illegal border crossings. The charities they’re supporting are The Texas Civil Rights Project, The Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project, The Catholic Charities of Rio Grand Valley and The Kids in Need of Defense. And, a friend of theirs will match all the money Vinnie’s raises.
Stop by to get your special slice to support the cause!
ATTENTION Tomorrow, Thursday June 21st, both of our stores in Williamsburg and Greenpoint, will be offering this special Heart Shaped Pizza on Pizza Slice all day. (Little pizza hearts melted into a slice of cheese). If you purchase one of these slices, 100% of the proceeds will be donated to charity organizations currently dealing with the cruel and inhumane separation of children from their parents along the U.S. border. We are currently pairing up with 4 different charities, The Texas Civil Rights Project @txcivilrights, The Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project, The Catholic Charities of Rio Grand Valley and The Kids in Need of Defense @supportkind . To top it off our amazing friend @karinaelise8 at Google has offered to match anything we raise! Amazing! So please spread the word. Share/ Repost this. Most importantly, please stop by and help us to fight the good fight and spread kindness and compassion all while enjoying delicious pizza (on pizza).
