Fox’s Pizza Den will hold their third pizza fundraiser of the 2011-2012 school year for Chet F. Harritt School on Thursday, March 29. The restaurant will donate 20% of net sales from all purchases to the school. This applies to both dine-in and take-out orders. If you want to call in your order to 619-749-4165, just be sure to tell them you heard about the fundraiser and want to do your part to help. So far Fox’s Pizza Den has donated about $600 this year alone.
In their first pizza fundraiser Fox’s was able to donate over $200 to help the school with those little extras that always seem to come up. While that may not sound like a lot of money, when you consider the average order you see that quite a few pizzas were sold just on that one day.
More than just helping the school, by taking part in this fundraiser you will be helping a local business stay in business during these tough times. Over the past year Santee has lost several restaurants, and while a few new ones have opened – or will soon – it is important to keep the ones that are already here. Every small business means a few more people employed, a few more dollars moving through the community and one less empty store front along the road.
So once again, “Thank You” to Fox’s Pizza Den for being a great member of the Santee community, and “Thank You” to all who participate in this fundraiser.
The numbers are in on Fox’s Pizza Den’s fundraiser for Chet F. Harritt School on Wednesday, February 9. Thanks to all of the families, couples, and individuals who came in for lunch and dinner, Fox’s was able to donate $213 to the school to use as they need. Now $213 may not sound like a lot, but if you figure an average order of say $20-$25, that turns out to be quite a few pizzas.
I stopped by Fox’s around dinner time and they were quite busy. The dining area was nearly full and there were families waiting for take-out orders. It’s always good to see a local business so busy, especially when they are helping local schools. But more than this, with the economy still moving slowly it’s important to support those businesses so that they will be around for the long haul.
So a big “Thank You” to Fox’s Pizza Den for supporting Santee Schools. And another “Thank You” to everyone who came out to help by ordering.
If you like pizza and you support Santee Schools, then Wednesday is your day. Fox’s Pizza Den at 8011 Mission Gorge Rd. is having a fundraiser for their partner Chet F. Harritt School from noon until they close. Fox’s will donate 20% of all proceeds from both dine-in and take-out orders to support the school. If you want to call in your order to 619-749-4165, just be sure to tell them you heard about the fundraiser and want to do your part to help.
With the still-struggling economy and lower home values, money is tight all around – especially for schools. Chet F. Harritt School does a wonderful job with the resources they get but any extra always helps. Plus you will also be helping one of our local restaurants that has been around for many years. Just since January 1 we have lost at least three area eateries and we don’t want any more to go the way of La Salsa, Cold Stone, and Panda Garden. So come on out on Wednesday, February 9, and help out the community.
