We are so excited to announce our partnership with Pizza Hut and Pepsi! We are launching the 2012 Heroes Campaign and National March is Red Cross Month at the “Heroes Kick-Off” event tonight 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. at the Pizza Hut located at 9702 Two Notch Road in Columbia.
At the Kick-Off, local media personalities will be helping serve pizza, as well as Red Cross disaster volunteers. In addition, representatives from Pizza Hut, Pepsi and the Red Cross will be in attendance to help launch this exciting campaign.
Red Cross Month is a great time for people to support our mission. We are grateful to our friends at Pizza Hut and Pepsi for giving their customers the opportunity to give back to the Red Cross. Support from our community will enable us to continue preparing and responding to disasters that occur every eight hours in our region.
In multiple locations throughout South Carolina and online, Pizza Hut and Pepsi will be offering customers a “Meal Deal” for $19.99 that consists of one medium one-topping pizza, one medium specialty pizza, a five-count order of breadsticks and a two liter Pepsi product soft drink. One dollar of the “Meal Deal” will be donated to the Red Cross. If customers wish to purchase a different menu item they will be offered the opportunity to purchase a “Heroes” point-of-sale poster for a minimum $1 donation. These posters will remain up in Pizza Hut’s across the state for the month of March.
In addition to the Heroes Kick-off event, throughout March a number of other local restaurants will be participating in “Restaurant-A-Day” in honor of Red Cross Month. These restaurants will be donating a percentage of their sales to support the work of the Red Cross. Click here for more information.
“Heroes for the American Red Cross” is a grassroots fundraising and awareness campaign that gives the public the chance to make a big, lasting difference and to be recognized for it, too. Heroes pledges to raise a minimum of $1,000 for the Red Cross during the campaign period. Participating Heroes can raise the money personally, as an organization or by hosting a fundraising event.

The Red Cross is not a government agency and relies on donations of time, money and blood to do its work. An average of 91 cents of every dollar given to the Red Cross is invested in helping the people with Red Cross services.
