Papa Murphy’s Take ‘n’ Bake Pizza Partners with Children’s of Alabama to ''Share the Love'' Every Wednesday in February

BIRMINGHAM & HUNTSVILLE, AL - In recognition of National Heart Month, Papa Murphy’s Take ‘n’ Bake Pizza is partnering with Children’s of Alabama every Wednesday from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. to donate 10% of all sales, in store and online, to support The Pediatric and Congenital Heart Center of Alabama.

Including walk-in, call-in, and online orders, the February initiative aims to raise awareness and supportive fundraising for the pediatric cardiac center which cares for more than 12,000 children each year. According to the CDC, congenital heart defects “are the most common type of birth defect in the United States, affecting nearly 1% of―or about 40,000―births per year.”

“Thanks to Children’s of Alabama, our neighbors have access to world class care for our littlest fans and we are proud to support their tireless work. After all, who enjoys pizza more than kids?!” shares Richard Averitte, Vice President of Marketing for Papa Murphy’s franchisee Twickenham Holdings LLC.

All 24 Alabama-area locations are participating throughout the month of February. To find the most convenient location, visit https://order.papamurphys.com/locations/AL. All participating Papa Murphy’s Take ‘n’ Bake Pizza locations are open from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. Both walk-in orders and orders placed online at https://order.papamurphys.com/ will add to the fundraising efforts, which will be celebrated with a special check presentation the week of March 8, 2021.

“We are excited to partner with Papa Murphy’s for the ‘Share the Love’ campaign this year,” says Abigail Daugherty, community development coordinator at Children’s of Alabama. “Their passion for making a difference in the community is incredible, and we are thankful they have chosen Children’s to benefit from their impact.”
