GLEN ROCK, N.J. — None of Sal Reina's Italian family members were affected by the 6.2-magnitude earthquake that shook Amatrice, Italy last week, but the Glen Rock pizza shop owner couldn't stop thinking about the people who were.
Francesca Brick Oven Pizza and Pasta will be holding a pizza-making fundraiser on Tuesday to aid the Italian Red Cross, which is already sold out.
"It just kept ringing in my head that I had to do something," said Reina, who pulled the event together late Sunday afternoon.
Family pictures hanging in his Rock Road shop remind him of his Sicilian family. Reina hopes to collect $500 through the fundraiser and donations.
Francesca is located at 234 Rock Road, Glen Rock. Stop by to make a donation.
