(Salem, Oregon) – Figaro’s Pizza in West Salem, announced its participation in supporting H.E. L.P., The Charity. H.E.L.P. stands for Helping Education with Love & Pizza; a perfect fit for Figaro’s. By honoring the non-profit organization, Figaro’s ensures that a portion of each dollar spent at Figaro’s Pizza-West Salem is donated right back into the local community schools.

Chris and Brenda Wylie, West Salem Figaro’s Owners/Operators are honored to give back to the West Salem community. As local business owners they feel a responsibility to support the community that supports them and their business. The Wylie’s have owned the West Salem Figaro’s Franchise since 2008, but Figaro’s has been supporting the West Salem community for nearly 27 years.

Figaro’s West Salem has been able to honor several H.E.L. P. Grant Applications over the past year due to the continuous support of the community through purchases made at Figaro’s. On April 9th, Brenda Wylie, owner of Figaro’s West Salem proudly presented a check for $1,000, to Mr. Rundquist, the Band Teacher at Walker Middle School. While his students would like to see him use the funds to purchase pizza, Mr. Rundquist has plans to replace some outdated equipment.

Many schools are facing difficult decisions in making cuts as the budget crises continue due to the recession. Mr. Danner, Walker Principal is very grateful and pleased with the support to the music program the West Salem Schools received from local businesses and parents. Without the support they would not be able to continue the same high quality program that they currently offer.
