Pay It Forward

Here at DiFontaine’s we are part of the Pay It Forward idea! It’s so simple and so rewarding.

It works like this:

● You buy your pizza slice, for you.
● You pay for another slice, for someone else.
● We suspend it.
● We offer it to someone in need.

Through Pay It Forward we are able to send multiple 20″ pizza pies to voluntary groups every week who work directly with the homeless and anyone who may be struggling in Dublin.  One such group is A Lending Hand which is run by Keira Gill from Coolock in north Dublin who, along with a team of volunteers, run a soup kitchen feeding up to 300 people every Monday evening on the steps of the Central Bank in the city centre. Find out more about a Lending Hand here and follow them on Facebook.

We also work closely with A Welcome Place a 100% voluntary organisation feeding the homeless and needy on Dublin’s Grafton Street, every Thursday from 8:30 to 10:30pm.  Follow them on Facebook.

In the past we have worked with Ozanam House which is a charity who work with people from 2 to 92 and often avail of these donated slices. They take them for their “teen“ groups, where they sit around, informally chat and eat pizza! Not so easy to get teens to talk! But with hot pizza on the menu, they are encouraged and relaxed.

We’ve also worked with a Homeless Men’s Shelter locally and are working on reaching homeless families and their kids…..what kid doesn’t love Pizza?

Any suggestions you might have on where to donate are always welcome.

Not the healthiest option, true, but we think you’ll agree that a treat once in a while is allowed.

 

It might be “only pizza” but it’s FREE and it’s being donated by our generous customers – the public – our community and Dublin’s tourists!

We all have to start somewhere…..
