JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Aug. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ - Papa John's® is teaming with Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) to support wounded warriors through the nonprofit. Now through Sept. 17, when customers purchase the WWP Combo at participating locations on papajohns.com, Papa John's will donate $2.22 for every special sold. With promotion code WWP22, this combo includes two large two-topping pizzas and a two-liter Pepsi® product for $22.22.
The donation amount from each combo sale reflects and brings awareness to the 22 veterans who take their lives each day. These veterans may struggle with a lack of resources and support for the visible and invisible wounds of war – something WWP combats by connecting wounded veterans with programs and services that empower them to live their lives on their terms.
"Wounded Warrior Project prides itself on being able to offer all of our programs and services to the wounded veterans we serve, free of charge," said Gary Corless, WWP chief development officer. "The generosity of our donors and partners like Papa John's make that possible. And with the football season kicking off soon, the timing couldn't be more perfect to enjoy some delicious pizza."
WWP kicked off this partnership during a warrior connection event held at the Jacksonville WWP office. Children of wounded veterans served by WWP enjoyed an evening of games, movies, and organizing back to school supplies, all offered for free to event attendees. And of course, Papa John's pizza was served throughout the evening. The simple act of attending a connection event with fellow warriors can reintroduce injured veterans to the unique bonds experienced during military service, helping to pave the road to recovery.
"Papa John's is proud to support the great efforts Wounded Warrior Project makes to help our nation's wounded veterans," said Ray Turner, franchise business director at Papa John's International. "Those heroes fought and sacrificed for our country, and supporting them in their recovery from the wounds of war is something that I believe all Americans can unite behind to support."
