We have started a program to help needy family at least for a day. It is our "RANDOM ACTS OF PIZZA" (RAP) program. Following is the reason and description of our program and the future of the growth of this program.
Do you remember when you were younger (some of us take a longer time to remember) and on a special occasion such as a birthday or an accomplishment you went out to celebrate usually for a pizza dinner? This program brings that opportunity to the needy families that want to celebrate those occasion but do not have the funds. It gives them a chance for a couple of hours to put away the tough day and have fun as a family celebrating a birthday, a good report card or a special event on the sports fields.
The program is such. A customer purchases a $10 certificate for a needy family. This gives the family an extra large pizza, salad, drinks and dessert. Tony & Alba's will make up the difference. The certificates are given to local organizations to disperse to families that they know are needy and could use the certificates. The families come in and use the certificates when they want to celebrate a dinner out together for whatever reason.
We hope that we can expand this program to other Pizza restaurants in the bay area.to reach more needy families. Currently we give the certificates to St. Martin of Tours food box program and their St. Vincent de Paul program. They help the local families around our Stevens Creek store.
Hopefully we can expand it to other types of restaurants and change it to "Random Acts of Dining". We could obtain tickets from movie theaters , local and college play houses or other social events and package it with the dinners. This would give the family a complete entertaining night out.
So the next time you stop by Tony & Alba's Pizza and Pasta on Stevens Creek think about the RAP program.
Conscience decision, happy endings.
