Local Business owner of Frank’s Pizzeria and family man Giuseppe Penza, on June 15th at 10:30 a.m. on RT 206, sustained substantial injuries in this tragic accident while running an errand. In these last few weeks, the Penza family has been through a lot. Giuseppe’s Father-in-Law passed away unexpectedly and Giuseppe himself is now facing a long road to recovery from this tragic accident. The family business continues to run without two of its most important patriarchs, one of whom is now in heaven and the other in the hospital.
Giuseppe Penza's injuries were so severe that he was airlifted to Morristown Memorial Hospital. He suffered severe spinal injuries, a broken / shattered hip, and a shattered shoulder, (to name a few) all of which will need to be reconstructed. He will have a very long road to recovery providing an uncertain future with the possibility that his injuries can limit the way in which he can return to his business. As a result, we're asking our wonderful community to assist a family who has always gone above and beyond to serve and help others.
Everyone in Mount Olive knows Giuseppe and the famed pizzas at Franks Pizzeria on Rt. 206. They are a hardworking and proud family who have never asked or needed this kind of help in the past. So now we are asking on their behalf for whatever assistance you are able to provide this deserving Family.
We pray for them and we will continue to give updates.
