Putting Others FIRST
the LAST Monday Each Month


Malek's Pizza Palace and Saint Athanasius have joined together to help people in need.

On the LAST Monday of each month, 25% of all sales generated that day at Malek's (dine in, take out, or delivery) will be donated to a good cause, to help make a difference in the lives of others.

for a list of charities and causes donated to in our first four years . . . and now our total given is over $75,000!


This Month (December): Stem for Life
                [Foundation helping to educate and support ethical research into therapies and cures
                 using adult stem cells.]
    NOTE: Since the Last Monday of December is Christmas Day and Malek's is closed, we
     will have the "Next to Last Monday @ Malek's" instead, on December 18th. Same great
     food and a great cause, just a week earlier than usual! Join us!

As you can see, each month a new charity will be chosen - some local, some national, and some international - that we may reach out in mercy to help people in need wherever they are.

So the last Monday each month, eat at Malek's! Enjoy some good food and help a good cause at the same time. And help us spread the word about this effort. We need your help! The folks at Malek's are being extremely generous in donating so much (25% of sales - not just profits!). And if you know of any good causes you think we should consider, please let us know that as well. Our goal is to donate $2,500 every month - which is quite ambitious! - but we will not rest until we do!
