Papa Gino’s continued their Pizza My Heart program this week, recognizing community heroes and delivering free pizza as a sign of appreciation for the work they do.
“Our Pizza My Heart donation program allows us to truly connect with the people in the communities we serve,” said Papa Gino’s CMO Deena McKinley.
“We get nominations through a google form triggered through social media, emails, and our website, and in this case, a patient wanted to recognize Jordan Family Eye Care for the outstanding service and care they provide to their patients, said McKinley. “The Pizza My Heart Program is all about recognizing heroes in our everyday lives, and we are proud that Papa Gino’s could deliver delicious pizzas to celebrate the neighborhood’s appreciation for Jordan Family Eye Care!”
From the start of the programs last year until the end of June 2021, through their respective donations, Papa Gino’s gave away 1,456 X-Large Pizzas to 186 organizations, and D’Angelo donated 8,450 Sandwiches and bags of Chips to 178 organizations. The donations were received by heroes of all kinds, in communities across New England.
“The Pizza My Heart program allows us to do our part in supporting the heroes in the communities we serve,” said Deena McKinley, CMO of Papa Gino’s and D’Angelo. “We are grateful for the opportunity these programs provide to connect with our neighbors, learn about the amazing things going on in our communities, and then reward the individuals involved with delicious food!”
