October 2019 is National Pasta Month, and this year, we’re teaming up with our friends at Barilla to celebrate and give back to the communities in our own backyard. For every pasta bowl sold during the month of October, Barilla will donate a portion of proceeds to our partner, The LeBron James Family Foundation, which goes directly towards supporting and empowering children and their families by providing children with resources to succeed in school and life. At the end of the month, Piada will be match the contribution for an even greater impact.
The LeBron James Family Foundation’s mission is to positively affect the lives of children and young adults through education and co-curricular educational initiatives. They believe that an education and living an active, healthy lifestyle is pivotal to the development of children and young adults. Their I PROMISE initiative serves at-risk students and families across Akron and provides them with the support, resources, and programming they need to be successful in school and beyond. You can learn more about LJFF’s mission and programs here.
But National Pasta Month doesn’t stop there…we need YOUR help! Our goal is to raise $25,000 for The Lebron James Family Foundation during the month of October through pasta sales. In addition, we’re giving YOU the opportunity to contribute with a donation when you place an order online or in-store.
Every day is an opportunity to make a difference. Let’s take advantage of that this October together!
