David Restituto ’92 and his wife, Heather, parents of Gio ’21 are the owners of Factory Donuts, specializing in fresh made-to-order donuts in Philadelphia. The donut shop combines Heather’s passion for baking, with their shared interest in entrepreneurship. The couple recently announced plans to open a second store in Newtown this fall.
David and Heather are also passionate about giving back to their community. Over the years they have supported a number of programs at George School as well as local charities. Most recently they donated goods for fundraisers and events on campus including dozens of donuts to support the Great Green Give, George School’s day of giving, and a fundraiser to benefit this year’s Nicaragua service trip. “We are so appreciative of the values that George School, instilled not only in David, but also for our son,” said Heather. “I love contributing and it gives me a chance to be a part of the George School community as well.”
“I was so grateful for the Restituto’s generosity for the Great Green Give. Their contribution helped keep our phone-a-thon callers energized and we had so many, that students throughout campus enjoyed their delicious donuts that day,” said Meg Peake ’03, director of the George School Fund.
This fall, Factory Donuts will once again contribute to George School with a donut wall—an entire wall decorated in specialty donuts—during the Embrace the World celebration at 6:00 p.m. on October 20. The evening will celebrate 125 years of education, service, and community. Held in the Fitness and Athletics Center, the event includes dinner, dancing, and a silent and live auction. All proceeds will support tuition assistance and faculty development at George School.
