“We’re thrilled to have the support of the Needs Clearing House and this great connection with Planet Pizza. These kinds of partnerships are central to our realizing our goal of inclusion. Their initiative and leadership is greatly appreciated by all of us at Abilis,” said Keelin Daly of Abilis.

Kaliko went on to say, “Not only are our pizza events enjoyed by those eating pizza; in many cases our events give the kitchen staffs at the various charities we serve, a break.”
Planet Pizza has been partnering with the NCH and various corporate sponsors to provide pizza monthly to charitable organizations in Fairfield County, including Kids in Crisis in Cos Cob, River House Adult Day Care Center (also in Cos Cob). the Disability Resource Network in Bridgeport and Derby and the Bridgeport Rescue a Mission.
In all over 400 people are fed each month at pizza lunch or dinner events, consistent with one of The Needs Clearing House’s objectives of helping charities help others.
Individuals and businesses wanting to join in sponsoring these events are encouraged to contact Joe Kaliko at 203-629-5555 or at [email protected]
