BROOKLYN, N.Y. (August 26, 2021) - Emmy Squared, the Brooklyn-founded pizza restaurant best known for its Detroit-style pizza, Le Big Matt burger, and handmade sandwiches, announced today the launch of Emmy Loves Education, a company-wide initiative to raise school supplies. Emmy Loves Education will run in all 13 Emmy Squared locations from Monday, August 30th - Friday, September 10th, allowing guests at all Emmy Squared locations to order from the menu of school supplies. The designated amount will then be added to guests’ orders. At the end of the drive, Emmy Squared will match the supplies in each market before donating the supplies to local beneficiaries in each of Emmy Squared’s markets. Currently, Emmy Squared has 13 locations in New York City, D.C., Philadelphia, Louisville, Nashville, Atlanta, and their newest location in Charlotte, N.C.
Emily Hyland, co-founder and partner at Emmy Squared, is spearheading this charitable initiative with the support of the managers and staff at each of the 13 locations in 6 markets. Before Emmy Squared, Emily taught high school English within the New York City Department of Education. While no longer in the classroom, Emily remains committed to community and education and is excited to bring this initiative to life. Hyland hopes that Emmy Loves Education will help bolster needed classroom supplies as students and teachers transition back into the school year.
“We are thrilled to launch, Emmy Loves Education, which we hope will become a yearly ritual for us wherein we, as a community, can provide much needed supplies to schools in our neighborhoods,” explained Emily Hyland. “As a former public school teacher, I’ve experienced the need for supplies and been alongside the teachers who spend hundreds of dollars out of their own pockets to make sure their kiddos don’t go without. Helping with supplies is an easy and simple way to support the amazing educators who work tirelessly to teach our little ones.”
Guests are encouraged to “order” supplies while dining-in to be added to their bill at checkout. Items include college-ruled 1 subject notebooks, packs of #2 pencils, loose-leaf paper, Crayola® colored pencils, and Bic® ballpoint pens. At the end of the month, each respective Emmy Squared location will match the donations in full, purchase the school supplies, and donate them to a nearby public school on behalf of the Emmy Squared team.
