The American Red Cross-Alabama Region and California Pizza Kitchen-Riverchase Galleria are set to team up July 16, 2015 for “Pizza with a purpose”. There are more than 100 days to make a difference this summer, and the American Red Cross urges the community to choose their day to make a difference.
“Pizza with a purpose” is a fundraising collaboration between California Pizza Kitchen-Riverchase Galleria and the American Red Cross-Alabama Region. It’s a summer of giving back to those in need and California Pizza Kitchen will donate twenty percent of their customer’s dine-in, carry out, catering or beverage check to the Red Cross.
“As an organization that depends on donations to carry out our mission, we are always thrilled to receive donations and support from a company in the community,” said Alicia Anger, Director of Communications and Marketing, Alabama Region. “Summer presents challenges for fire victims, disaster survivors and blood donations. Community support at this time is greatly needed.”
Customers who wish to donate must present the event flyer to their server at the California Pizza Kitchen-Riverchase Galleria.
