Every month, Pizza Top chooses a charity to raise funds for, and uses a tip jar and a blackboard to draw attention to its cause.
"It's about food, clothing and education," said Mavridis. "It's just the perfect cause."
The wave of support for Life and Hope Haiti started in the Kittery area in Maine, and has steadily spread west through New Hampshire over the past six years, said Miller. Rotary clubs, church groups, families and even neighborhoods have joined the grass-roots movement to ensure that the students at Eben Ezer have what they need to survive and to thrive, Miller said.
Thus far, Pizza Top has raised more than $500 for Life and Hope Haiti, said Mavridis, and the effort is still underway to raise more. The business has recently begun sponsoring a child at the school, and Mavridis said that, by spring, he'd like to travel to Haiti to visit the school and meet the child his business and his customers are helping.
