As the founder and CEO of 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria, Brian Petruzzi of New Jersey oversees an international pizza chain with more than a dozen locations. Alongside his professional pursuits, Brian Petruzzi supports the Atlantic City Rescue Mission.
There are many ways to help the Atlantic City Rescue Mission. In addition to monetary donations, donors can give first-aid products, baby care items, clothing, blankets, and food products. The Mission is also in constant need of personal care items, including toothpaste, soap, razors, shampoo, and antiperspirant.
Other ways to support the Atlantic City Rescue Mission include volunteering time in the organization’s kitchen or on its farm, which operates May through August. The Mission relies on volunteers to run Hopeful Grounds, a “pay-what-you-want” café that serves coffee and pastries. Throughout the year, the Mission also holds several fundraising events, including concerts and its annual Summer Gala.
