PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Four Penguins players have donated pizzas to local community centers.
Teddy Blueger, Tristan Jarry, Sam Lafferty and John Marino bought 500 Fox’s Pizza on Friday and Fox’s matched that to distribute 1,000 personal pizzas.
Pizzas were delivered to Northview Heights Housing on the North Side, the Boys & Girls Club of Western Pennsylvania in McKees Rocks, the Turtle Creek Ambulance Station, the Tarentum Marina and White Lily Baptist Church in Chartiers City.
The goal is to feed children and families who normally rely on schools and communities pantries for some meals.
“Fox’s Pizza Den is honored to share our resources and partner with the Pittsburgh Penguins to support our local neighborhoods,” said Jim Fox, president of Fox’s Pizza Den. “We are thrilled to join this team of supporters to help those in need during this difficult time in our great city.”
Earlier this month Bryan Rust, Marcus Pettersson and Zach Aston-Reese bought 500 pizzas that were delivered to community distribution centers on the Northside and in the Hill District.
