Pizzeria Uno Supports American Red Cross Queens Office

On Thursday, September 2, Pizzeria Uno restaurants will help support the Queens office of the American Red Cross in Greater New York by donating a portion of the day’s receipts through its “Dough Raiser” program.

The restaurant will donate to the Queens Red Cross office 20 percent of the receipt of anyone who visits any of the three Pizzeria Uno restaurants in Queens and either provides a “Dough Raiser” coupon or mentions the Red Cross by name.

The money raised will help support the chapter’s disaster response operations in Queens. Last year, the chapter responded to 575 emergencies in Queens and assisted 2,481 borough residents with food, shelter and/or counseling following a disaster. So far in 2010, the chapter has responded to 291 emergencies in Queens and assisted 1,486 people.

The Pizzeria Uno restaurants in Queens are located at:

• 39-02 Bell Blvd, Bayside • 37-11 35th Ave, Long Island City

• 107-16 70th Rd, Forest Hills

To pick up free “Dough Raiser” coupons, visit the Queens office of the American Red Cross at 137-02 Queens Blvd., Briarwood; to obtain coupons by fax or e-mail call the office at 718-558-0053.

The American Red Cross in Greater New York is a key humanitarian partner and a vital participant in New York’s plans and programs to help more than nine million people in New York City and Orange, Putnam, Rockland and Sullivan Counties prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies. The chapter responds to an average of seven emergencies a day— fires, floods, building collapses—and provides immediate humanitarian aid to as many as 100,000 people affected by these emergencies each year. Additionally, the chapter helps New York residents and businesses prepare for emergencies by offering hundreds of lifesaving courses and emergency preparedness training programs and resources.

The American Red Cross in Greater New York is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, not a government agency, and relies on donations to fund its free humanitarian services. For more information, call 1-877-RED CROSS (1- 877-733-2767) or visit www.nyredcross.org.
