Heart-Shaped Pizzas Debut at Boston’s Pizza Restaurant & Sports Bar Locations Nationwide this February
National Casual Dining Brand Partners with No Kid Hungry for Annual Boston’s Cares Fundraiser
February 04, 2020 // Franchising.com // DALLAS - Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and nothing says “I love you” quite like a heart-shaped pizza - unless that delicious pie comes with a side of charitable giving. This February, Boston’s Pizza Restaurant & Sports Bar (Boston’s) is launching its annual Boston’s Cares campaign which aims to fight childhood hunger across the country through a partnership with No Kid Hungry. No Kid Hungry is a national campaign run by Share Our Strength, a nonprofit working to solve problems of hunger and poverty in the United States and around the world.
From February 3 - 14, guests will have the opportunity to donate to the cause by visiting a local Boston’s and purchasing gourmet, heart-shaped pizzas and decorative paper hearts to be displayed in the restaurants. Guests can support the cause by visiting their local Boston’s and participating in two separate philanthropic initiatives happening at the restaurant including:
- Paper hearts - from February 3 - 14, guests are encouraged to decorate and display paper hearts in the restaurant for a minimum donation of $1. Paper hearts will be on display throughout the month of February.
- Heart-shaped pizzas - starting February 7 - 14, $1 from the sale of each heart-shaped pizza will be donated to No Kid Hungry.
“Each year we look forward to our Boston’s Cares campaign as it perfectly embodies the values of our brand - giving back to our communities through partnerships with respected organizations such as No Kid Hungry,” said Katie Borger, Vice President of Marketing for Boston’s. “For over a decade, we have been participating in this fundraiser and we are thrilled to add to our cumulative donations of through this year’s efforts.”
