Besides Dining for Dollars, we support our community through local donations, such as:

  • Food donations
  • Special coupons
  • Mici gift cards
  • Kindergarten field trips

Mici is also famous for their “Free Pizza for a Year” auction item given to select local schools and organizations.

Deb Deverell, Head of School at Paddington Station Preschool in Aurora, shares her feedback about her experience with Mici:

“Working with Mici was fantastic! They were so easy to work with for each of our encounters. They graciously provided lunch for our professional development days we had this year. Mici went the extra mile by providing a three-course meal. They truly believe in education and the teachers. We can’t thank them enough for their continuous and generous support for our kids and our school.”

Requesting a donation is simple. All you have to do is email your request to Marissa@MiciItalian.com with the following information:

  • Tell a little about your organization or school
  • Detail how the donation will be used
  • Provide your tax ID number

We ask that you give us 4-6 weeks’ notice for consideration. Mici will attempt to fulfill all requests that fit the above criteria. After reviewing your request, a Mici team member will contact you.

Giving back to our surrounding neighborhoods in Congress Park, Downtown Denver, Highlands Ranch and Stapleton is a priority and a major component to Mici’s guiding principles.  Thank you for providing us meaningful opportunities to do just a little more than serving delicious, handcrafted Italian food!
