Thanksgiving will come early for Pizza Hut communities located throughout West Virginia, Ohio, and Kentucky as part of "A Day of Giving" on Tuesday. Pizza Hut locations across the states will be making special deliveries to local EMT, police and fire departments, hospitals, shelters, and community centers.
In total, 1,750 pizzas will be delivered to the organizations that serve the area as a thank you.
"A Day of Giving" is the brainchild of Tabbassum Mumtaz, founder of Ampex Brands who recently purchased 35 Pizza Hut restaurants from Pizza Hut LLC in West Virginia, Ohio, and Kentucky. Twenty-five of these locations are in West Virginia, four are in Ohio, and six are in Kentucky.
Mumtaz sees the event as a way to give back to the community and show just how important the neighbors of the local restaurants are. Over the past six years, "A Day of Giving" has fed over 300,000 families.
"We are so honored to be a part of this community and we wanted to take an opportunity during the season of giving to give something back to our neighbors," Mumtaz says. "We recognize that it's a difficult time for many, and we hope 'A Day of Giving' will be an example that inspires other local businesses to lend a hand."
"We are so proud of being part and giving back to each community where we do business," says Hector Gomez, VP of operations at Pizza Hut.
