Wantagh Pizzeria Donating to Nassau Hurricane Recovery Fund

Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza is giving 20 percent of its proceeds on Mondays in April toward the Nassau Hurricane Recovery Fund's efforts to collect donations for Sandy victims.

Newly opened Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza in Wantagh is devoting the month of April toward helping local residents still suffering from last fall’s devastating impact caused by Hurricane Sandy.

Twenty percent of all proceeds on dine-in and carry-out orders on Mondays in April at the new pizzeria located on 3430 Sunrise Highway will be donated to the Nassau Hurricane Recovery Fund (NHRF). The NHRF was created by Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano last November to collect and organize donations and distribute them to victims of Sandy.

Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based Anthony’s also donated 100 percent of its Wantagh location sales during a Feb. 6 grand opening to Island Harvest's local Hurricane Sandy relief effort.

“I am so grateful to Anthony’s for their generous offer to provide a percentage of their sales to Nassau’s Hurricane Recovery Fund,” said Mangano in a statement. “Thanks to businesses throughout Nassau we have been able to provide some form of support to those who have been unable to overcome the financial hurdles associated with the storm and the recovery. The community spirit in Nassau has been amazing.”

Those choosing to dine at Anthony’s on a Monday in April should tell the server that they are dining to support the Nassau Hurricane Recovery Fund.  For further information, log onto the Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza website.

They should also pay the Wantagh Fire Dept the money it cost them to answer the numerous false alarms since opening, smoke alarms going off in the AM when they stoke the coal fire. Kudos to the volunteers who get rolled out for these false alarms, and the taxpayers who have to foot the bill for equipment and fuel to answer these nonsense calls.

Thank God they were false alarms and not the real thing, And also that no one got hurt getting to the scene.. Sounds like something that can be fixed.And I am sure like the rest of us taxpayers, he is paying or whomever owns the property is paying in their taxes for fire protection. The guy is trying to show the area he is willing to be a part of the community with fund raising, don't give the guy a bad taste for Wantagh. We all don't share your view
