Anthony’s Partners With United Way For Hurricane Irma Relief Efforts
Since Hurricane Irma tore through the state of Florida last week leaving destruction in its wake, many people have been without food, shelter and other daily necessities. In light of the natural disaster that literally hit close to home, Florida-based Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza is giving back to communities across Florida.
On Monday, September 25, 2017, all 27 locations in Florida will donate 20 percent of proceeds from dine in and take out sales to United Way. United Way has created the United Way Irma Recovery Fund to support local communities in the Southeast United States and Caribbean affected by Hurricane Irma.
“Our philosophy at Anthony’s has always been to create a neighborhood feel in each of the communities we serve,” said Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza Founder Anthony Bruno. “In a time of need, it is essential that we pitch in to ensure that our home state rebounds quickly from the effects of Hurricane Irma.”
The United Way Irma Recovery Fund has already raised nearly $7.6 million exclusively for recovery efforts from the disaster. As part of its goal to build stronger communities, and to fight for every person in every community, United Way chapters in the hurricane affected areas will continue to raise money locally and respond to emerging needs as they arise.
For locals who are able to help Anthony’s support the cause, they can enjoy all of the classic and delicious menu items that the brand is known for locally. All restaurants are fully operational and ready to serve the fresh, never frozen dishes that can be shared with family and friends for a good cause.
“Working with United Way provides an opportunity to move forward toward recovery both locally in the Fort Lauderdale community and throughout the state,” said Bruno.
