In the wake of the tragic Farmingdale bus crash, Avco Boxes, a leader in pizza and bakery box manufacturing, has demonstrated exceptional community spirit. Collaborating with Phil’s Syosset and Dine LI, Avco Boxes played a pivotal role in the "LI Pizza Strong" fundraiser, a heartwarming initiative uniting 140 Long Island pizzerias in a noble cause.
This extraordinary event saw each participating pizzeria donate $5 from every pizza sold on October 25th. The collective efforts culminated in an astounding sale of 15,437 pizzas, raising over $102,200. This substantial amount will provide significant support to the families affected by the Farmingdale bus crash, including those critically and non-critically injured, as well as honoring the memory of educators Gina Pellettiere and Beatrice Ferrari who tragically lost their lives in the accident.
Avco Boxes, founded in 1989, has a long-standing tradition of supporting local communities. Known for their high-quality, USA-made pizza and bakery boxes, Avco's participation in "LI Pizza Strong" reflects their commitment to making a positive impact beyond business operations.
This event is a testament to the power of community collaboration in times of need. Avco Boxes extends its deepest gratitude to all pizzerias, volunteers, and community members who made "LI Pizza Strong" a resounding success.
Gil, the founder of Avco Boxes, emphasized, "Our involvement in 'LI Pizza Strong' reflects our deep commitment to the community. It's more than just making boxes; it's about being a part of something bigger and making a real difference where it counts." This initiative highlights Avco's focus on community impact alongside its business operations.
