NPC International and Pizza Hut Make a Special Delivery

This winter, Goff Cash, Area General Manager of NPC International, engaged 40 Pizza Hut restaurant locations throughout Hampton Roads in a shoe collection effort for THRIVE’s Walk a Mile in Their Shoes Program.

Something as simple as a shoe collection has a far-reaching impact, beyond just our section of Tidewater. In fact, the Walk a Mile In Their Shoes program makes a 3-step difference:

1) Shoes are delivered to the most impoverished nations on earth
2) Funds are earned for THRIVE that directly help families in crisis on the Peninsula
3) Waste is reduced in our nation’s landfills through the reuse of these items

We are so grateful for the support we have received from NPC InternationalPizza Hut and other community partners!
