Go out to eat this Wednesday and help Belmont High School’s Belmontian Club provide warm PJs for kids in need.
On Wednesday, Feb. 24, head to Bertucci’s at the Alewife MBTA station for snacking or dinner and the restaurant will donate 15 percent of their sales that day, from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. to Cradles to Crayons, through the Belmont High School Belmontian Community Service Club.
It extends to all dine-in, takeout, or delivery orders. You will need this coupon—either a printed copy or on a smartphone.
Sponsored by the Belmontian Club, this Bertucci’s promotion is part of the ongoing campaign to raise money and warm pj’s for Cradles to Crayons, a non-profit organization in Brighton, which provides gently-used clothes and gear for needy Massachusetts children from infancy through middle school.
The Burbank, Butler, and Wellington elementary schools joined Belmont High School in sponsoring “PJ Days at School,” the club collected funds on a recent Saturday at the Belmont Star Market, and the Belmont Car Wash on Trapelo Road will support Cradles to Crayons on Saturday, March 26. Club members will dry cars from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will receive a donation of $1 per car and all of the tips.
So far, the Belmontian Club has raised over $2,600 and 108 pairs of new pajamas from these activities, with Bertucci’s and the car wash still to go.
