Papa John’s Pizza Raises $50,000 for Salvation Army Feeding Programs

On Tuesday, our friends at Papa John’s Pizza asked for Facebook and Twitter users to ‘like’, ‘share’, and comment on their pages to raise awareness of America’s hunger problem, with every good word, re-tweet and thumbs up garnering a $1 donation for The Salvation Army’s feeding programs.

And in just ONE DAY thanks to the power of social media, compassionate supporters and pizza lovers alike, over 70,000 likes and 15,000 shares were received on Papa John’s Facebook page – which means The Salvation Army received a $50,000 donation from the company that will help feed Americans in need through our shelters, pantries, and emergency disaster services efforts.

We are beyond humbled by the generosity of Papa John’s Pizza and thankful to everyone who helped spread the word on social media. Thank you for your support!

Help us say thanks to Papa John’s Pizza on Facebook or on Twitter with the hashtag #PapaJohnCares.
