SAN DIEGO, April 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Pizza lovers rejoice – 131 Papa John's® stores across multiple western states are offering a special combo to raise support for the warriors served by Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP). Now through May 27, $2 of every special combo sold – two large one-topping pizzas, cheesesticks, and a two-liter beverage for $25 – will be donated to WWP.
Since 2003, WWP has been a tireless advocate for our nation's finest, improving the lives of over half a million warriors and their families with free programs and services. WWP serves warriors by connecting them with one another and their communities. Programs also focus on mental and physical health and wellness, financial wellness, independence, government relations, and community relations and partnerships.
"Wounded Warrior Project prides itself on being able to offer all of our programs and services to the wounded veterans we serve free of charge," said Gary Corless, WWP chief development officer. "However, the need is great and growing for warriors. According to a Harvard study, the costs of care for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans over the next 40 years could reach $4 trillion to $6 trillion. And the war isn't just affecting veterans. Family members work to adjust to a new normal when they give up paid employment to become unpaid caregivers, affecting their quality of life. To meet these growing needs, WWP will be there to deliver on its promise to connect, serve, and empower warriors and their families. And because of the generosity of our donors and partners like Papa John's, we can achieve that goal."
