SEATTLE, WA – Pizza Hut restaurants in the Seattle, Spokane and Columbia Basin areas will donate 50% of all pizza sales from 108 participating locations on Wednesday, April 2 and Thursday, April 3 to victims of the mudslide disaster in Oso, Washington.
The Pizza Hut restaurant in Smokey Point, closest to Oso, will donate 100 percent.
"Everyone has been emotionally impacted by what happened in Oso, and our hearts go out to the families," said Terry Hopkins, CEO and owner of Emerald City Pizza, Columbia Basin Pizza Hut and Spokane Valley Pizza. "As a local business, we immediately contacted city representatives and the American Red Cross to find out how we could help. We were able to get our restaurants from across the state to work together on a fundraiser that will immediately benefit those in need."
Proceeds from the two-day effort will be given to the American Red Cross to be used in support of the relief efforts. Those looking to participate can do so via delivery, carryout or dine-in.
