Barro’s Pizza and Pepsi did their part once again to help Arizona families affected by pediatric cancer. Last month, Barro’s Pizza and Pepsi donated proceeds from the sale of all lunch specials from all Barro’s Pizza locations in the Valley. It was just reported that for the fifth year in a row, they reached their goal of donating $40,000 to Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children (ACFC), a local nonprofit whose mission is to help Arizona families with the high costs and challenging logistics while caring for their children during cancer treatment.
“We couldn’t be happier to be able to help such an amazing organization like Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children,” said Bruce Barro co-owner of Barro’s Pizza. “We reached our goal once again of donating $40,000, and we have our customers to thank for that. 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 $140,000 for ACFC. The $40,000 gift goes directly to providing financial assistance to families for living expenses, travel expenses for treatment, treatment and prescriptions, funeral expenses and more. The donation will serve a minimum of 80 families. This year, Barro’s Pizza and Pepsi’s support will help keep up with the increasing demand for help directly related to additional challenges families are facing due to COVID-19.
“Barro’s Pizza and Pepsi are incredibly kind to donate $40,000 each year to help our children and families battling cancer,” said Chrisie Funari president and founder of Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children. “It’s because of the generosity of companies like Barro’s Pizza that we’ve been able to help more than 700 families in Arizona. We can’t thank them, and their customers, enough for their continued support.”
