PADUCAH, Ky., Jan. 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Local Pizza Inn restaurants are continuing efforts to support families and first responders impacted by last month's tornado. The pizza company will host a fundraiser at its two Kentucky locations and will collect donations for seven families who have been devastated with the loss of homes and belongings.
"Our team has been feeding first responders and providing meals through local churches for the last several weeks," said Larry Rust, Pizza Inn franchise owner in Paducah. "We are donating sales from our busiest days to help families who need our assistance and are providing an easy way for people to make donations."
The in-store fundraiser will be held Jan. 7 - Jan. 9 in Paducah and Frankfort restaurants where a portion of sales will be allocated directly to the seven families. In addition, cash donations will be accepted via a donation box in each restaurant. Donations for the families and first responders will also be accepted through online ordering.
