Mount Pleasant, SC (PRWEB) August 09, 2013
Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, famous for its award-winning, hand-tossed, coal-fired brick oven pizzas and calzones, has joined with Reading Partners for a Back to School 2013 Book Drive from Aug. 15 through Sept. 15. Guests who donate three new or gently used elementary school books at Grimaldi’s Pizzeria in Mount Pleasant will receive a Grimaldi’s $5 off card (limit one per person. Grimaldi’s $5 off card good for future visit only). Donations benefit Reading Partners, a nonprofit literacy organization that recruits and trains community volunteers to provide one-on-one reading tutoring to students in under-resourced schools across the country.
"It is important for us to give back to the communities where Grimaldi’s Pizzeria has restaurants and education is of vital importance. We have held book drives in other markets so we are excited about implementing one in South Carolina," said Brittany Maroney, director of marketing of Grimaldi’s Pizzeria. "We are eager to collect books for children who can learn from them, and might not otherwise be able to enjoy them."
Books may be dropped off at Grimaldi’s Pizzeria at the Mount Pleasant Towne Centre, 1244 Belk Dr. Mt. Pleasant, SC 29464.
About Grimaldi’s Pizzeria:
In the world of pizza, Grimaldi’s is an institution that has garnered more awards than any other pizzeria in the country with more celebrity sightings than most 5-star restaurants. Using only the freshest ingredients, a “secret recipe” pizza sauce, handmade mozzarella cheese and dough, Grimaldi’s serves traditional pizza (as it began in Naples, Italy) in an upscale yet casual, family oriented pizzeria. The intense heat of the oven evenly bakes the pies to create Grimaldi’s famous crispy and smoky thin crust that Zagat has voted best pizza year after year.
