A Christmas Blessing for Your Kiddos!
Posted on October 10th, 2018
At Pizza Ranch, we know that there are families in your community facing a tough time over the holiday break, and we’re here to help! Please join us in this year’s “The 12 Days of Pizza!”
Sean Covel, Producer of NAPOLEON DYNAMITE and THE 12 DOGS OF CHRISTMAS, was having lunch with a 2nd grade teacher in his South Dakota hometown. It was the day before Christmas break and she had 12 students who would be without a dependable food source until school resumed 12 days later. It was a big problem without a clear solution.
Sean had an idea. He reached out to the Pizza Ranch in Rapid City and Black Hill Community Bank for help. That day “The 12 Days ofPizza” came to life! 12 families were given 12 coupons for one pizza (or one box of 8 Pc. Chicken) per day for 12 days.
The program is very simple 1. There will be NO COST to the organization or to the families. Pizza Ranch and a local community sponsor are covering the cost to give 12 meals (either 1 large pizza with any/all toppings or one box of 8 Pc. Chicken) to 12 deserving families in your community for the 12 days of Christmas break.
2. You Pick ‘em. We Help ‘em. We recognize nobody knows the needs of students and their families better than you do! We look to your guidance counselors and social workers to select 12 families with at least one elementary-school-age child to be the “WINNERS” of The 12 Days of Pizza. We will provide coupons packages that you will personalize and give to each of the families. Coupons will include information on how to redeem each coupon for a meal, at the location of Pizza Ranch. Please point out to the families that hours on Christmas are not the same as regular business hours, and some locations may be closed. Packages will also include a DVD copy of Sean’s movie, THE 12 DOGS OF CHRISTMAS!
3. Families Redeem the Coupons at Pizza Ranch. Families can visit Pizza Ranch to redeem the coupon for 1 large pizza with any/all toppings or one box of 8 Pc. Chicken anytime between December 20th and January 15th, 2019.
4. Celebrate the Spirit of the Season. At Pizza Ranch, we recognize that you do SO MUCH to help the students (families) in your community. We are proud to be able to help in any way we can. Happy holiday, and thanks for all you do. SCHOOL
