HONOLULU, HI – Pieology Pizzeria is proud to donate $10,000 to support Hawaii’s middle schools through the R.E.A.C.H. Initiative, whose mission is to ensure all students in grades 6 to 8 receive the academic and community-based support they need to stay on track toward high school graduation, college, career and beyond.

The $10,000 donation will go to Niu Valley Middle School, which recently requested the support from R.E.A.C.H., and is located very close to Pieology at the Aina Haina Shopping Center.

“After learning about the R.E.A.C.H. program and the invaluable tools and lessons they provide for our middle schoolers, we wanted to show our support,” said Cotti Foods’ president and CEO, Peter Capriotti II.  “This donation is just one of the ways that Cotti Foods and Pieology would like to say ʻMahaloʻ to the community for their overwhelming patronage and support during our first year in Hawaii.  We plan to get involved in other excellent programs like this one that help Hawaiiʻs keiki, and look forward to opening more Pieology locations around the state and get involved in all of the local communities we serve.”

“On behalf of R.E.A.C.H. Out Hawaii and the R.E.A.C.H. Initiative, I’d like to express my deepest gratitude and appreciation to Cotti Foods and Pieology for becoming a partner in our mission to provide quality after-school programs for public middle and intermediate school students,” said Lt. Governor Tsutsui.  “Cotti Foods and Pieology join our family of business partners who have stepped up to the plate to support the schools in the community in which they serve, and I encourage other businesses to join our ohana.”


REACH Out Hawaii is the 501c3 non-profit fundraising and support arm of the R.E.A.C.H. Initiative.  It was created by Lieutenant Governor Tsutsui to be uniquely positioned to be able to build innovative public-private partnerships that can match government with the charitable resources of the private sector, partnering Hawaii’s public middle and intermediate schools with generous community partners seeking to help our schools move forward.

The purpose of this statewide initiative is to provide an organizational framework and a funding base for public schools to offer after-school programs for middle and intermediate school students so they can stay on track toward high school graduation and be better prepared for future success. The programs offer instruction and activities from three general areas: academic enrichment, arts and culture, and athletics.  For more information, visit, and follow us on FacebookInstagram and Flickr.
