Pita Pit on Lansdowne-Making a Difference

The new Pita Pit located on Lansdowne St. West has opened its doors. They kicked things off with a Family and Friends Night, where pitas were free with a donation to Five Counties Children’s Centre. This was followed up by a dollar being donated from each pita sold, to the general public, on their first full Friday of operating. All proceeds raised were personally matched by owners Matthew Brown and Stephanie Ervin (right). They presented a cheque for $2,800 to Dave Adams (left), executive director of the Five Counties Children’s Centre Foundation, to help get kids off the waiting list.Pita Pit Feb 2017
