On Wednesday, December 13th, five trucks and vans packed to the gills with toys made their way to the Children’s Hospital. With the help of some of Santa’s elves at PIN Business Network, their mission was to make some very special children’s holiday a little bit brighter. All thanks to Pizza Republica and their annual toy drive!
For the past five years Pizza Republica has partnered with the Rocky Mountain Children’s Health Foundation. The goal? To completely fill their toy room with joy for sick, ill and injured children. Pizza Republica held an event on Tuesday that invited anyone to stop by for Free Pizza, gingerbread house building and of course fundraising!
This is a great event and initiative to help brighten sick and injured children during the holiday season. Communications & Development coordinator of RMCHF Sarah Shepard showed her appreciation for those at Pizza Republica.
“We want to thank Pizza Republica, Questor Sapnu and George Eder for organizing this amazing event. When a child is seriously ill or injured, they are often faced with lengthy hospital stays and several doctors’ visits and treatments. Many times, they are away from home, friends and families on special days such as birthdays and holidays.”
The night was a huge success. Resulting in five trucks FULL of toys to bring to the kids at the Children’s Hospital the next morning.
RMCHF doesn’t just help kids out during the holidays, they are a year-round charity that assists sick and ill children. Each year, RMCHF helps out over 3,000 pediatric patients and their family throughout Colorado!
Shepard and those at RMCHF really appreciate the efforts done by Pizza Republica.“We are so humbled by the incredible support of the community and Pizza Republica. It was a record-breaking evening. With the most toys donated in the history of the No Kids Left Behind Toy Drive.”
It warms the heart seeing Coloradans coming together to make spirits bright and hearts warm! Hopefully the efforts of Pizza Republica, RMCHF and PIN Business Network inspire you to do some good!
