Pizza Pizza and Pizza 73 delivered 10,000 slices of pizza to hospitals for the ‘Slices for Smiles’ fundraiser in May.
Toronto mascots such as the Raptor, Carlton the Bear, and Jason from the Argonauts brought slices to SickKids Hospital in Toronto. Afterwards, staff and children were invited to join a party in the atrium.
The hospital was one of various locations where pizza was delivered to. During the campaign, customers were encouraged to purchase a small pepperoni Smile Pizza for $4.99 at participating restaurant with proceeds from sales given to the Children’s Miracle Network; direct donations were also accepted.
The charity raises funds to support critical treatment, healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment, and research for children.
