It's June and the Valley is now submerged in full blown heat. The homeless community is especially vulnerable during the summer and all Valley Papa Murphy's locations and Phoenix Rescue Mission have teamed up to conduct a water drive from June 1 through June 30 to collect cases of bottled water.
Join all Valley Papa Murphy's Pizza locations in this important endeavor to hydrate the homeless population of Phoenix. Simply drop off a case of bottled water between June 1 and June 30 at any Valley Papa Murphy's Pizza location and receive a coupon for $5 off a Family Size Pizza. Limit one coupon per person during the month of June, 2015.
"Water is a minimum essential," says Phoenix franchise owner Ed Holmes. "When we were apprised of the great need our city's homeless population has for this resource, we knew we had to step up. We have over 40 locations Valley-wide set up as collection spots and we're hoping others will be compelled to act for this worthy cause."
The bottled water collected at Phoenix Metro Papa Murphy's Pizza locations will support the Phoenix Rescue Mission's Code Red summer heat relief for the homeless. This is the third-year of the life-saving campaign, which last year distributed more than 362,000 bottles of water on the streets. The goal for 2015 is to collect 500,000 bottles of water and Papa Murphy's Pizza states that it is proud to be part of this effort!
