Domino's just gave thousands of free pizza to people in Newfoundland
Unless you've been stuck on a deserted island for a week with no cell reception, you'll know that Newfoundland is currently recovering from a record-breaking blizzard — and now, Domino's pizza is helping them out.
On Monday evening, Domino's surprised Newfoundlanders with 2,000 free, extra-large pizzas. Nurses, police officers, plow drivers and other first responders were treated to an estimated $30,000 worth of cheesy goodness.
Huge thank you to @DominosCanada for supplying pizza to first responders during this SOE! Sgt. Green is in shock of their generosity, as you can tell from the video! Members delivered them to St. Clare’s, RNC locations, and other first responders this afternoon! pic.twitter.com/bLyieNzJTR— Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (@RNC_PoliceNL) January 20, 2020
The tower of boxes was so large that Domino's delivery drivers needed trolleys just to bring the pizza into the buildings.
Even police officers got involved, using squad cars to deliver the free pizzas around the city.
Obviously, Newfoundlanders were pretty excited by the prospect of free Domino's pizza.
One nurse couldn't believe how much pizza there was.
Awesome!! We are at Pleasantview Towers and received enough pizzas also for our dedicated nursing staff!! Hats off to Dominos!!— Mary moore (@Marymoo53820286) January 20, 2020
And another woman was feeling proud of her homeland.
That is so very generous, great to see Newfoundlanders pull together in times of need. I love hearing things like this, proud to be a Newfie.— Marie (@Marie03765013) January 21, 2020
One hungry security guard was excited to get some pizza.

And a team of snow removal experts gave Domino's a shout-out for their generous gift.
👏 A big THANKS to @DominosCanada for providing pizza to our dedicated snow clearing crews today. Our crews enjoyed their lunch as they work tirelessly to clear to the snow from the record snow fall. Thanks for thinking of us!👏 pic.twitter.com/Y7PzHVmEe9— Town of Paradise (@townofparadise) January 20, 2020
Newfoundland's supermarkets were in chaos yesterday, so the free Domino's pizza must have come as a welcome surprise. Conditions are expected to improve as the week goes on.
