POINT PLEASANT, NJ – Shortly after opening their new pizzeria, Guiseppe and his staff at Oakwood’s Point Pizza in Point Pleasant was forced, like all other restaurants in New Jersey to cease normal business operations and work under Governor Phil Murphy’s new restaurant guidelines, but that hasn’t stopped them. Throughout the ordeal, they have not only remained open, but have become very involved in giving back to the community. They have been making food donations to front line medical workers at the nearby Brick Ocean Medical Center and to the local police stations.
Support the Shore was started by Wingman Planning CEO Tom Mirabella whose company is a full-service marketing firm located in Manasquan to offer free video services to help local businesses get the word out about their status to the public. In return for the video, Wingman Planning asks that those businesses make a small donation to local fire, police, EMS or frontline emergency workers.
“The pandemic hit, and our full-service marketing agency moved from working as a team of 12 in Manasquan to working from home,” Mirabella said. “I didn’t want to furlough or let anyone go, even though our clients have been impacted which in turn impacts us. I was watching companies all around us struggle and turn to layoffs and realized that we could help these businesses spread the word about what services they were offering to their customers.”
