The money was raised through a fundraising day hosted Friday, September 22. Ten percent of all food and gift card purchases made that day went to the school.
The Cape Girardeau Imo’s Pizza is owned and operated by PAJCO, Inc., which also owns and operates Rhodes convenience stores.
The donation equaled 10% of Imo’s Pizza purchases made September 22 at Imo’s Pizza located at 1201 Broadway, including gift cards. The school’s earning potential was not limited to only a few hours of operation or just customers that mentioned the school upon ordering. Rather, Imo’s Pizza at Rhodes allowed the school to benefit from all purchases made that day. Imo’s Pizza helped Jefferson Elementary School publicize the fundraiser by providing fliers and to share with students’ families and Facebook posts to reach its social media followers.
Imo’s Pizza invites any interested school to book a 10% fundraising day with its locations or presell Imo’s Pizza frozen pizzas. Interested schools should contact the Cape Girardeau Imo’s Pizza or their local Imo’s Pizza at Rhodes. Imo’s Pizza and Rhodes have raised more than $3,329 for ten different organizations since introducing its fundraising days in March 2017.
