The Humane Society of Ocean City (HSOC) received a donation of nearly $1,700 from Manco & Manco Pizza.
“As if we needed another reason to show how amazing our town is, Manco & Manco representatives presented us with a big check,” said Phil Bellucci, operations manager at the HSOC.
Owner of the Manco & Manco restaurants, Chuck Bangle, and another representative from the business, Rich Cicconetti, met with Bellucci and HSOC Executive Director Bill Hollingsworth and presented them with the $1,678 check.
The donation, Bellucci explained, was generated through Manco & Manco staff participating in “No Shave November” and “No Shave December.”
Manco & Manco staff who participated in the fundraisers grew beards and mustaches over the course of two months.
And the cause of their choice was the animal shelter.
“We cannot express how much we appreciate the support of our local businesses coming together to further our mission to provide the highest level of compassion and service to our animal friends,” Bellucci said. “In a nation divided by so many issues, it is heartwarming that we all seem to come together for the love and care of animals.”
