There are many campaigns similar to this across the country. Many have raised thousands of dollars to help support the front line protectors that have been infected at a higher rate due to the exposure of the virus. Their sacrifices have been high and need the support of families and communities as we all work through this pandemic.
Candicci’s has a history of helping raise money for a variety of local projects. Bob Candice, manager of Candicci’s, is always first to call asking us asking us to help him get the word out in order for him to help the community. Candicci’s has been in business for 40 years serving authentic Italian cuisines across the St Louis region. You can be assured that your donation will help those that it is designed to help.
We will update the information as more contributions are received. Additionally, we will update the community as to which health care providers received the food.
