Barro’s Pizza and Pepsi teamed up to help families in Arizona affected by childhood cancer.
Last month, Barro’s Pizza and Pepsi donated the proceeds from the sale of all lunch specials from all Barro’s Pizza locations in the Valley.
For the sixth straight year, they reached their goal of donating $40,000 to the Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children (ACFC), a local nonprofit whose mission is to help Arizona families deal with the high costs and challenging logistics while they their children during cancer treatment.
“We’re thrilled to be able to help organizations like the Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children,” said Ken Barro, co-owner of Barro’s Pizza. “A big thank you to our customers who helped us reach our $40,000 goal again. We are so grateful that our customers continue to support our efforts to help others in our community.”
With this year’s contribution, Barro’s Pizza has now raised more than $180,000 for ACFC. The donation will go directly to providing financial assistance to families for living expenses, travel expenses for treatment, treatment and prescriptions and funeral expenses for a minimum of 80 families. This year, Barro’s Pizza and Pepsi’s support will help keep up with the increasing demand for aid directly related to additional challenges families are facing due to COVID-19.
“Every year we are amazed by Barro’s Pizza and Pepsi’s generosity,” said Chrisie Funari, president and founder of the Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children. “Thanks to companies like Barro’s, we can help more than 800 families in Arizona with children battling cancer. We are so grateful for their continued support and passion for our mission.”
