Helping Harvey and Irma Victims: We’ll match Pound for Pound!
All Retail & Fundraising Online Sales from September 15-October 15th
UPDATE: We are sending 10,512 bags of pasta! That is 876 cases, or about 8 skids of pasta to help the Hurricane Victims!
THANK YOU for your support!
We are all hurting and praying for the families in Texas and Florida that have been impacted by the crazy storms. The flood waters have been devastating and here in Nashville it brings back memories from our 100-year flood of 2010.
While there is much difference in the floods and damage, what is common is the coming together of states and cities to help each other survive and recover. The past week in the office we’ve been talking about what we can do to help these victims, either stores that have bought from us, or individual customers who have bought through our website or fundraising program with us over the years.
Pasta is a universal comfort food, loved by most people, it appeals to the entire family, and one of its best qualities is it has a long shelf life. We happen to make Lone Star Texas Pasta, in the shape of the state of Texas and stars. It’s always a best seller as Texans are known for their state pride. And Flamingo and Palm Tree Pasta are always best sellers, especially in the beachy states. So, we saw this as an opportunity to help two communities that are in need.
So here is The Pasta Shoppe pledge: For the next 30 days (ending October 15th), we will match all pasta sales, bag for bag, pound for pound, and donate bags of Lone Star, Flamingo and Palm Tree Pasta to help the victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. So, for example, if you order 3 bags of pasta, we will send 3 bags of to the help support the families. We’ll take total number of pasta bags sold, and divide our contribution between both states.
How can you help? Order pasta from our website Pastashoppe.com. Take advantage of shopping for Christmas early. Stock your pantry. Have some fun supporting this cause.
If you are a fundraising group, share your group’s online link. Share on Facebook, email, etc. All pasta sales from these online orders will also be counted! Let your friends and families know they are not only helping your group!
Let’s see how much Pasta we can donate to help these Texas and Florida families. We want to contribute to as many dinner tables as we can and help these folks in their recovery. We hope it brings comfort and smiles, and shows them that even people at a small pasta company in Nashville care. Thanks in advance for your support in this effort!
