Papa Murphy’s Holdings, Inc. announced a pilot partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, which raises funds and awareness for local children’s hospitals to provide treatment for millions of children each year. To support these efforts, Papa Murphy’s will host a charitable giving campaign at participating Papa Murphy’s stores in the Memphis, St. Louis and Minneapolis areas from September 15 to October 15 and will have a special National Pepperoni Pizza Day celebration on September 20.

“We are incredibly honored to announce this pilot partnership and do our part to raise funds and awareness for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals,” says Weldon Spangler, CEO of Papa Murphy's Holdings, Inc. “We have many children come through our doors each day, and we’re proud to help make a positive impact on extremely deserving children. Giving back to our communities is something that has always been part of the Papa Murphy’s brand, and we invite area residents and visitors to join us in supporting this cause.”

Throughout the month-long campaign, families and fresh-pizza lovers alike who visit any participating Papa Murphy’s store in the Memphis, St. Louis and Minneapolis areas may make charitable donations to CMN Hospitals through a variety of methods:

Customers are invited to purchase paper Miracle Balloons for $1, $3, or $4.25, with all proceeds donated to support their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Because fresh-baked goodness comes when you set your oven to 425-degrees, those who give $4.25 or more will receive a paper Miracle Balloon that includes a detachable coupon for $4.25 off a regular-priced pizza of any size on their next visit to Papa Murphy’s.

Customers are also invited to round up their check to the nearest dollar, with the difference donated to their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.

On September 20—National Pepperoni Pizza Day—Papa Murphy’s will celebrate one of America’s favorite pizza toppings by offering a large pepperoni pizza for only $6 to any customer that donates $4.25 or more to CMN Hospitals.

“We’re thrilled Papa Murphy’s has chosen to partner with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and join in our efforts to provide the necessary funding to ensure that sick children get the care they need,” says John Lauck, president and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “Papa Murphy’s fresh pizzas are a delicious way for us to increase awareness, and we couldn’t be more excited to work with a company that values children and families.”
