Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop is partnering with the Las Vegas Rescue Mission to collect non-perishable food donations at all Las Vegas Capriotti’s locations to provide those in need with a Thanksgiving meal. From November 4, 2013 through November 23, 2013, guests can drop off donations in specially marked bins at any Las Vegas Capriotti’s. Those who donate five or more items will receive a free small to medium sandwich upsize.
Last year, the Las Vegas Rescue Mission served approximately 1,800 Thanksgiving meals and distributed Thanksgiving food baskets to nearly 2,000 homes in the community. This year, Capriotti’s is supporting the Mission by collecting dry, canned and other non-perishable food items to feed even more members of the local community during the Thanksgiving holiday. The Capriotti’s Support Center staff is also volunteering at the Mission to serve meals on November 26, 2013 from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to give back to the community and help during the organization’s busiest times of the year. In addition to the sandwich franchise’s efforts, Butterball, a longtime supplier of Capriotti’s turkeys, is donating 20 turkeys to the charitable cause.
“Capriotti’s is eager to give back to the community and we want to encourage our fans to do the same by donating to the food drive in the spirit of Thanksgiving,” said Ashley Morris, CEO of Capriotti’s. “Every family deserves to have a happy Thanksgiving Day celebration and we want to do our part, so partnering with the Las Vegas Rescue Mission is the right thing to do.”
