Several area Pizza Huts are teaming up with United Way of South Central Georgia to help feed the region’s hungry by providing people with a great deal for feeding their own family.
“You can help us feed many of our neighbors by eating at Pizza Hut on April 15 and spreading word of this event to as many people as possible,” says Greg Millette, executive director of United Way of South Central Georgia.
On Tuesday, the Pizza Huts in Ashburn, Fitzgerald and Tifton will be setting aside a portion of sales to give to United Way (between 10 and 20 percent, depending on total sales).
“United Way will be using these donations to help underwrite our Basic Nutrition efforts, currently consisting of monthly support to Backpack Buddies (Turner), Christian Kitchen (Ben Hill), Meals on Wheels (Tift) and Tifton Soup Kitchen,” Millette said.
To participate, purchase a meal at Pizza Hut any time Tuesday by presenting a voucher (found on the United Way of South Central Georgia Facebook page, Twitter and LinkedIn pages) with their payment for in-store and phoned-in orders or using the promotion code “UNITEDWAY” for online orders. People can also participate by eating in the restaurant, picking up an order for carryout or choosing delivery where available.
If people dine in during the evening hours (sometime between 5 and 7:30 p.m., depending on location), they can get a free child’s buffet with the purchase of an adult buffet.
“Thank you for your support,” says Millette. “Let’s feed lots of area folks through this effort.”
