PICCIONE PASTRY DECLARES A WINTER OF GIVING
Community Giving Isn’t Just A Holiday Event
Piccione Pastry, St. Louis’ premier Italian pastry shop, will celebrate A Winter of Giving for their Pastries with a Purpose program. Treat yourself and support local non-profit organizations in January, February and March 2016. Piccione Pastry will donate 10% of one week’s total net sales to a different non-profit organization each month during the Winter of Giving.
Congratulations to the Pastries with a Purpose: A Winter of Giving recipients:
January 19-24: Coat A Kid, providing new coats, hats and gloves, free of charge, to St. Louis kids in need.
February 16-21: Immigrant & Refugee Women’s Program, increasing the independence and reducing the isolation of immigrant and refugee women by teaching basic English and practical living skills.
March 8-13: Rose Of Sharon Ministries Inc., helping people identify their spiritual gifts, gain spiritual fortitude and become spiritually healthy, in order to fully serve.
Stop in to support these local non-profit organizations and enjoy a scrumptious array of seasonal-and-classic Italian-style desserts. And, warm up with Piccione Pastry’s new lunch menu featuring Italian Calzones! Each Calzone is prepared with Piccione’s house-made pizza dough, filled with a savory three cheese blend and served with a side of marinara sauce. Try a Pepperoni and Sausage Calzone or the Veggie Calzone for only $6 this winter. The new lunch items are only available at Piccione Pastry from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Friday.
“The Pastries with a Purpose program is designed to assist organizations that work tirelessly to make our community a better place. We have been fortunate to be able to assist 25 local non-profits to date, the program has been well received, and we look forward to giving back to our community again this winter,” said Sandia Hoormann, Pastry Chef at Piccione Pastry.
