If You Thought Wiseguy Pizza Couldn’t Get Any Greater – Check Out What They’re Doing Now

Lots of folks have been asking how they can help out hospital workers – here’s a great, delicious way from Wiseguy’s GoFundMe:

“Wiseguy Pizza x Altani for Healthcare Workers

Making food is how we show our love, and we’ve fought this pandemic the best way we know how to–by helping to feed the people on the front lines. We were able to donate 101 18” pizzas (feeding 400+ people), 800 masks, and 7400 gloves in a single day to 6 area hospitals as well as other essential workers and those in need.

Then the calls started to roll into our store from people who wanted to help do the same. So we’re making a formal ask for you to contribute to helping us keep area healthcare workers fed and provided with a much-needed bit of cheer.

OUR PLAN

Wiseguy Pizza is going to deliver a mix of cheese and pepperoni pies to 6 area hospitals (listed below).

Our sister brand, Altani Gelato, will also be donating medium cups of gelato to healthcare workers. It’ll be served from our mobile gelato cart, stationed right outside each hospital on the day of pre-arranged delivery.

The donation will be a 1:1 match.
The pizzas are valued at $22 per (huge!) 18″ pizza, and a medium gelato is $5.50. With our match, you’re able to donate a full pizza (feeding 4) and a cup of gelato for just $13.75.

OUR GOAL

100 Pizzas + 100 Cups of Gelato, per hospital. That’s 600 pizzas (feeding 2400) and 600 medium cups of gelato.

We’re hoping to raise that in the next 2 weeks, but we’ll keep going if you keep donating!

We’re about a month out from summer. That means you’ve still got time for spring cleaning!

Lexi Grant, an operations manager at Well-Paid Maids, shared her go-to spring cleaning tips with WTOP News. Step one? Declutter. Get rid of items you don’t use, find space for items that need a home and organize those areas.

Then, it’s time to dust. Lexi starts with high-touch surface areas (think: refrigerator, dishwasher, counters, microwave). One area she sees often neglected is the bedroom — and it makes sense. Heavy furniture is difficult to move around, but it’s important to really get in there so dust doesn’t affect your sleep.
