Spokane, Cd'A Domino's feeds Second Harvest
Beginning today and continuing every Tuesday and Wednesday this month, Domino's pizza stores in Spokane and the Coeur d'Alene area will be donating $1 to Second Harvest from each delivery order. Additionally, customers will have the opportunity to make monetary donations to Second Harvest anytime during the month when they place an order.
"Our desire was to figure out a way to make a difference in the community this spring," said Kelly Pryor, owner of Domino's Pizza, Spokane. "As all of the stores in Spokane and Coeur d'Alene are locally owned and operated, we feel a responsibility to help however we can. "With phones ringing in our stores in response to our new improved product, it seems like the perfect time for us to become involved in this effort."
"We are grateful for our local Domino's stores and their partnership with Second Harvest," said Jason Clark, executive director of Second Harvest. "With more people seeking help from the agencies in our hunger-relief network, Domino's assistance comes at a very important time."
