Michael Griffin Teams with Papa John's to Raise Over $8,000 for Sacks 4 Kids

Posted Jan 28, 2013

Papa John’s presented $8,592 at Nashville's Hunter’s Lane High School to Titans safety Michael Griffin’s Sacks 4 Kids program.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Papa John’s today presented $8,592 at Nashville's Hunter’s Lane High School to Titans safety Michael Griffin’s Sacks 4 Kids program, raised through sales of the “Michael Griffin Special” throughout the NFL Regular Season.

The “Michael Griffin Special” consisted of a large two-topping pizza and two-liter beverage for $11 with $1 of each order going to Sacks 4 Kids, which provides sacks of healthy foods and snacks for kids to take home on weekends when they otherwise do not have access to nutritious meals.

 

The program is active in four high schools throughout Nashville and partners with Packed With Love, a local grassroots non-profit to distribute the food.

“When we heard of Sacks 4 Kids and their mission to provide sacks full of food to underprivileged children in the Nashville community, we knew immediately that Papa John’s wanted to be involved in helping raise funds for this program.” said Bobby Meroney, operations vice president for Papa John’s “It’s important to be involved in your community, and this was a great opportunity for Papa John’s to team up with Michael Griffin to give back.”

In addition to the check presentation, Papa John’s provided pizza and beverages to approximately 50 Hunter’s Lane students, who had a chance to sit down with Griffin and discuss his career in the NFL.

“It’s hard to believe that in this city we have kids going home hungry, but there are kids every day who don’t have access to meals and nutritious foods when they go home,” said Griffin, a two-time Pro Bowler who just completed his sixth season with the Titans. “Our goal through Sacks 4 Kids is to help the kids who are most in need get foods and snacks to keep them energized and healthy. Thanks to Papa John’s, we are making that happen for hundreds of kids here in Nashville.”


Headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, Papa John's International, Inc. (NASDAQ:  PZZA) is the world's third largest pizza company. For 11 of the past 13 years, consumers have rated Papa John's No.1 in customer satisfaction among all national pizza chains in the American Customer Satisfaction Index  (ACSI).  Papa John’s also earned the 2012 Harris Poll EquiTrend® Pizza Brand of the Year.
