Today I wanted to take a step back from my typical food blog to shine the spotlight on an amazing pizza restaurant that goes above and beyond for their local community. So much of my blog focuses on the ambiance, flavors and service received at a lot of the places I dine out at but I absolutely loved the opportunity to showcase the good that can come from these places too.
Woodstock’s Pizza in SDSU hosted an event recently for the National Federation For The Blind in San Diego. The Chapter President Lisa Irving was so sweet and I even launched my IGTV channel with a quick video of her talking about how the NFFTB helps the blind community. Seeing these two entities come together for a common good was so inspiring! It honestly made me take a step back and think about something that I often take for granted…my eyesight! So much of what I do and love relies on me being able to see but not one of the people I met at the event seemed to let it get them down. It really makes you think about the mundane and unimportant things we can find in our day to day lives to complain about that don’t matter in the long run.
Samantha and Bronzen represent the marketing team at Woodstock’s and you can tell that not only do they genuinely love what they do but that helping the local community is something they are truly passionate about. Did you know that the Woodstock’s Pizza company as a whole donated over $200,000 dollars to non-profits and charities last year? Truly amazing!
I’m happy that they invited me to be apart of their event so that I could tell the story of the good they are doing! Food is something that connects everyone. We may have different dietary restrictions or tastes but at the end of the day we all need to be fed! It’s great that Woodstock’s is able to combine helping others with delicious food and great company.
If you know of any charitable organizations or non-profits that need help with fundraising you can reach out to Woodstock’s here.
