Domino's Lithgow franchisees James Acreman and his wife Astrid will be raising 'dough' for the Lithgow RFS.
On Saturday, January 25, $1 from every pizza sold will be donated directly to the local Lithgow RFS to support firefighting efforts.
James said with bushfire season still far from over, his team was looking to help in any way they could, even if it was something as simple as giving someone a hot meal when it's likely the last thing on their mind.
"Domino's is often the last kitchen to close during a national disaster, supporting affected communities by donating meals to first responders and evacuees," James said.
"We are proud to support the everyday heroes on the front lines and communities displaced by the devastating fires, and will continue to support in any way we can."
With Lithgow being directly affected by the Gospers Mountain Fire, staff from the local Dominos store were unable to attend work.
"With staff not able to come to work we had to close the shop during the break and even today still have staff who have been displaced," James said.
James said that they thought this would be a good way to raise money, as well as bring new clientele to the store who might not have bought from them before.
Astrid said the store had never done a fundraiser for an organisation like this before, normally sticking to sporting teams.
"Lithgow RFS can either take the money we raise or we can buy them any equipment they may need," she said.
The store will also have a donation box on the counter if residents want to donate more money.
The 'Doughraiser' for the Lithgow RFS will be held at the Domino's Lithgow store all day, which is open from 11am until 11pm.
In December 2019, Domino's registered charity Give for Good and franchisees across Australia raised almost $70,000 for bushfire affected communities.
For the month of January, all proceeds received via Domino's Round Up For Charity initiative will be donated directly to the Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund.
