This Week in the Valley: Give Back with Three Edible Charities and Treat Yourself to $1 Gyros and $4 Pies
Fired Pie
This week, there are some great dining deals, as well as several opportunities to give back to the kids and the troops while dining out. We'll be planning our meals around these good deeds and discounts.

Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory
Buy Chocolate for the Troops (and Yourself)
Monday, July 17

Chocolate is one way to get over the Monday blues, and the Tempe Marketplace branch of Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory is offering a great excuse to indulge. During July, the shop will send the same amount of fudge you purchase for yourself to a service member overseas via Packages From Home, a Glendale-based nonprofit organization. You can include your own thank-you note to military service members, which will be sent along with the fudge.

Tuesday, July 18

In honor of their four-year anniversary, Fired Pie will be offering their custom, choose-your-own dough, topping, and sauce pies, and build-your-own salads, for $4 with the purchase of a drink on Tuesday. The deal is good for dine-in service at any of their 16 Valley locations.
