The first Monday of September is known to most as Labor Day, a national holiday recognizing hardworking Americans. But at 1791 E. 10th Street (aka Pizza X Campus), we have our own “Labor Day” … a labor of love known as Free Stix Day!
The event begins just about the time the students are hopping out of bed from a long night of being with friends. The line at our campus store winds around cars and buildings, like a long rope, with various booths of fun set up along the way.
Many people wonder why we do this. Our answer is two-fold. It’s our way of welcoming students back to campus and because our stix are such a popular item, we LOVE to share them! The more serious answer is that Free Stix Day is not just about handing out a bag of doughy goodness with your choice of dipping sauce — it’s SO much more.
It’s also an opportunity to raise money for charity by asking our customers to vote for cup colors via donations. Choosing cup colors might be the only thing more important than stix or getting your photo taken with your friends. This year’s charity was the Monroe County Humane Association.
We prep for days, weeks, even months to make every year better and more fun than the last. Sound too good to be true? Come see for yourself next year!
