East Stroudsburg Domino's donating all Sunday's sales to shooting victim's family

Delivery driver shot and killed during robbery.

EAST STROUDSBURG, Pa. - Pie after pie, customers picking up arms full of pizza and it's an important day for customers to buy.

"Today we are having a fundraiser where we will be donating 100 percent of the sales to the LaBar family," said Woody Hermey, the Director of Operations at Domino's in East Stroudsburg.

Richard LaBar was delivering a pizza for this Domino's location in East Stroudsburg last Monday when he was shot in the face around 1:30 a.m. just outside the ROTC building on East Stroudsburg University's campus.

Authorities said the order was fake.

According to officials, it was a way to rob Richard of the cash he was carrying.

"It was a real tragedy. It has taken all of us by shock" Hermey said.

LaBar died Tuesday night at Lehigh Valley Hospital Cedar Crest.

"Team members here have really taking it hard," Hermey said. "This is actually the first day that we have had any smiles in the restaurant in the last week."

He said giving back to LaBar's family is a small way to help employees cope with the loss of a good team member and friend.
