MORRISTOWN, NJ - Verrilli's is inviting the entire Morristown and surrounding communities to come to the bakery/deli on Tuesday December 11 to help support a Morristown resident who recently received a bilateral lung transplant. She will likely stay in the hospital for months to recover, so the bakery will be donating 10% of your bill to the Pye family to help with expenses.
Pye, a long time Morristown resident and Morristown High School graduate has lived with a very rare and non-curable disease called scleroderma. According to the Scleroderma Foundation, Scleroderma, or systemic sclerosis, is a chronic connective tissue disease generally classified as one of the autoimmune rheumatic diseases. "Scleroderma is not contagious, infectious, cancerous or malignant" but it is serious. Currently, there is no cure for scleroderma.
Come for the pizza, the pastries, the doughnuts and for a member of the community! Verrilli's is located at 3 Martin Luther King Avenue in Morristown.
"On Tuesday December 11th, mention Melanie Pye and be apart of our team in helping one of our own", said staff at Verrilli's.
