Their not really known that well in our circle.Dominic DeFelice – Owner
Which is what makes this partnership different. Blue Chem is a local company that distributes chemicals to metal industries.
So pizza is not their forte but they knew they had to help out during these tough times.
It would be a very unique way to reach out to people it wouldn’t just all the people who are usually helped in this difficult time and helped every day.Stephen Gretchen – Regional Sales Technician with Blue Chem
This allows others to nominate an individual or family that might need a burst in spirit.
So it is just a way to help those who are stuck inside or struggling financially and just need a little bit of brightness in this dark time.Stephen Gretchen – Regional Sales Technician with Blue Chem
Those nominated will receive a medium 1 topping pizza. Blue Chem began by donating 200 pizzas but DeFelice stepped it up.
We are going to send out about 240 of them.Dominic DeFelice – Owner
Not only is this partnership exciting for both companies . The amount of nominees they already have in only three days tops it all.
We already have 52 nominations. It’s really exciting and really amazing because they are all really good people.Dominic DeFelice – Owner
