Lansing, MI– Tony Sacco’s Coal Oven Pizza has partnered with Operation Homefront to raise dollars for local military initiatives.  On Tuesday, July 23, 2013 at 8:00 a.m. the store will be stuffing backpacks for students with military parents.  That evening from 5:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. the public is invited to dine in the restaurant for a fundraiser giving 20% back to the cause.

“We are dedicated to giving back to our community,” stated store manager Nick Neuveau.  “We want to be involved neighbors and support amazing local causes.”

Tony Sacco’s partners with a new 501c3 every month.  Support is shown through staff volunteerism, pizza fundraiser nights, and monetary donations.  In June the store gave to the Capital Area Humane Society.  Upcoming causes include: The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce College Fund, Komen, and Junior Achievement.

Tony Sacco’s is a unique family restaurant that prepares menu items in a coal fired oven that generates an internal temperature of over 1,000 degrees, allowing food to cook quickly and create a perfect crust while leaving toppings al dente.  The store offers an extensive lunch and dinner menu that includes salads, sandwiches, wraps, pizza, and dessert.  All food is made fresh, never frozen. There are no freezers, fryers or microwaves located anywhere in the store.   

Operation Homefront is a national organization that provides food assistance, auto repair, moving assistance, vision care, homefront celebrations, Operation Homefront community villages, financial assistance, travel and transportation, home repair, morale holiday programs, essential home items, and so many other services to military families.
