Boston Pizza uses dough to raise dough for local charities

Boston Pizza’s 21 Days of Christmas is underway. In the first year, they raised $7,200 and last year they raised $8,300. All the money raised is split between the Campbell River Food Bank, The Knights of Columbus Christmas Hamper and the Salvation Army Christmas Kettle.

Boston Pizza is inviting its guests to donate through them with the promise of matching up to $1,500 in donations – essentially doubling the money that Boston Pizza would typically donate each year.

As an incentive for their guests that do choose to donate, they are offering an individual pizza and pop (a $15 value) for donations of $25 or more.  This year Boston Pizza added a new incentive for groups to donate through them.  For every $100 donated, they will provide an entry into a draw for three pizza parties (up to 40 people). Think of it as using dough to raise some dough…

The funds that are used to match customers’ donations are generated throughout the year.  Boston Pizza servers contribute each week through casual Fridays.  Boston Pizza runs two national fundraisers each year for the Boston Pizza Foundation – Future Prospects.  Ten per cent of the funds the store raises during its Valentine’s Day campaign and Kids Cards in the fall is allocated for use in Campbell River.

“We want the opportunity to reward the giving community that we live in,” Boston Pizza franchisee Chris Seeley said. “We want to be able to help provide to those in need at this special time of year and the chance to thank those that contribute to others every Christmas.”

The 21-day campaign finishes Dec. 12 with a visit from Santa.  Kids (10 & under) eat free with a donation (non-perishable food item or new unwrapped toy).  A photographer will be on site and provide guests photos with Santa.
