Saturday, January 18th is the date of the 2020 pizza event. Make sure you are on the sign-up sheet as we need over 80 volunteers. Bring your friends, relatives, coworkers, people you like, people you don’t like. Jim Fournier will be guiding our efforts again, utilizing his assembly line knowledge to keep production moving and with high quality. Make it easy for Jim with an abundant volunteer base.
How many pizzas will it be this year? That is up to you. With the good tasting product we make, it's an easy sell. It is easier to sell when you say it is for Wesley Church. Why not order additional pizzas (Pies) to give to your helpful neighbors or friends. Orders need to be to Tracey or Randy Lovell (589-5136) by Wednesday, January 8th.
And there is another way to make a sale and that is to donate money that will be used to provide pizzas for the Oshkosh Area Community Food Pantry. Last year 21 people donated 150 pizzas but that could be so much higher if more join this group. The food pantry is always in need and what a great way to say Wesley cares. Our order form makes that easy, a line allows you to add your dollar donation to your order or you can submit a separate order using just that line and make the check payable to Wesley UMC. We will select the kind of pizzas.
What if you don’t eat pizza? Your friends, family and neighbors probably do. If you don’t order any, please consider making a monetary gift on the pizza order and just call it pizza support to boast the pizza fundraising effort.
Last year we made 2240 pizzas. That was an increase of 10% from the year before. Can we increase our sales by another 10%? With the good quantity of help that we have, our crew can make more so let's give them the work. Go forth and sell!
Regarding those 2240 pizzas, the top 3 sellers were sausage at 688, pepperoni at 391 and sausage/mushroom at 359.
We are also in need of clean brown paper grocery bags that are used in delivering the pizzas.
See you on the 18th for a good time and a great cause. Help the budget off to a great start.
