Pizza with a Purpose: USPT Helps Hurricane Victims
Hurricane Harvey is sweeping through the gulf coast of Texas releasing record levels of rainfall on the Lonestar State, displacing tens of thousand from their homes and destroying property.
The U.S. Pizza Team has felt the urge, like so many other great people in this country, to do what we can to help out those in need in these trying times. Having family members, team members and friends affected by this tragedy, the team put on their chef coats and decided to do something about it.
On Thursday Sept. 7th, the team will hold “Pizza with a Purpose” day. Twenty-four team members equaling 37 locations, will be donating $2 per pizza sold to the Houston Food Bank, benefiting the residents of the great state of Texas.
Members will also be selling “Pizza with a Purpose” slices in their stores fro $1.00 each all week long to be donated to hurricane relief as well.
The Following members will be participating in “Pizza with A Purpose ” day. Please find a location near you and help our fellow citizens in Texas!
