DOMINO’S PIZZA SELECTS WOONSOCKET AS RHODE ISLAND’S

“PAVING FOR PIZZA” GRANT RECIPIENT

WOONSOCKET, R.I.: Domino’s Pizza has selected Woonsocket as the sole Ocean State municipality to receive its ‘Paving for Pizza’ grant which will award $5,000 to the City to apply to road paving costs to help ensure its delivery drivers and carry out customers experience smooth rides along local roads.

“Woonsocket greatly appreciates Domino’s generosity as well as its proactive interest in helping to improve our City’s roads which are well traveled daily,” said Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt. “As Mayor, I feel honored to have our City share in the company of other great cities nationwide such as Albuquerque, Anchorage, Burbank, Duluth, New Haven, New Orleans and Wilkes-Barre where Domino’s has already awarded grants.”

Under its national ‘Paving for Pizza’ grant program, Domino’s will issue fifty $5,000 grants to one municipality per each state. Headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the pizza giant will select each winning municipality based upon the greatest number of favorable nominations for each that Domino’s receives.

Mayor Baldelli-Hunt added, “It is an honor to have Domino’s select Woonsocket of all Rhode Island’s 39 municipalities to receive the very first award of this innovative grant.”
