Locally owned and operated, Napizza, has launched a new program to support its local neighborhoods. Beginning in October, the restaurant will host “Napizza Community Nights” every Tuesday evening from 3-9pm where guests will know their dollars are going farther to support local schools and charities. Co-owners Giulia Colmignoli and Christopher Antinucci have committed to giving 10 percent of all proceeds from Napizza Community Nights to select non-profits.
During the first month, (October) the Napizza Little Italy location (1702 India Street) will donate funds for its Tuesday Community Nights to Washington Elementary School, which has been part of the community since 1914. Napizza’s 4S Ranch location (10550 Craftsman Way Ste 186) will support Oak Valley Middle School with funds going to support the campus’ after school programs.
“Raised in Italy, giving back is part of our culture,” said Colmignoli. “We take careful attention to support causes, host special events and get the word out about caring for our environment and communities, but we haven’t formalized our efforts until now. I think this will be really great as it will raise funds for some very important causes but even more, we’re excited to see these Tuesday nights bring people together. They can learn more about the chosen cause and even stir up new volunteers and more.”
Napizza Little Italy will support Slow Food Urban San Diego in November, San Diego Food Bank in December and I Love a Clean San Diego in February. Napizza 4s Ranch will support Del Norte High School in November, Del Sur Elementary in December and Stone Ranch Elementary in January. For the full calendar and updates, visit www.na-pizza.com.
