Give yourself a break tonight and help the kids at Ross Elementary School.

The Borderstan branch of HomeMade Pizza is donating a portion of proceeds from the sales of its most popular items for one day only. The fundraiser starts at 1pm today and ends at closing. The promotion applies to all online, phone and in-person orders, but all orders must be picked up at the store, 1522 14th Street NW; no delivery is available. Their phone number is 202-588-0808.

“This is a straight donation,” said Melisa Niane, DC District Manager for HomeMade Pizza. “We don’t upcharge our products on the fundraising day… our customers simply purchase a HomeMade dinner at the normal price and we donate money based on that.”

The Parent Teacher Association at Ross Elementary will receive $4 for every deep-dish pizza sold, $3 for every large pizza and 10″ gluten-free pizza sold, and a percentage from sales of other items, including gift cards and catering orders.

Ross Elementary PTA supports many activities at the school, including field trips, staff development, classroom supplies, classroom technology and parent education. This is their first fundraising event with HomeMade Pizza.

Ross Elementary School is at 1730 R Street. It has about 150 students from pre-kindergarten through fifth grade and has been in operation since 1888.
