Giving back to the community

Pizza King donates to the Allen Cancer Center


Since 2008, Pizza King has been providing for patients of Nanticoke’s Allen Cancer Center through donations from various campaigns. In 2013, they wanted to do more to raise funds and awareness for the local people in the community. So, every Tuesday in October as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Pizza King donated a percentage of all sales from their restaurants in Seaford, Bridgeville, Georgetown, Laurel, Millsboro, and Harrington. This includes food sales as well as specially designed pink t-shirts sold throughout the month.

On Friday, November 22, Laura Short, Customer Relations/Marketing Manager and Heather Roberts from Pizza King presented a check to Penny Short, BSN, RN, President of Nanticoke Memorial Hospital in the amount of $4,484.49. “It is very heartwarming to partner with community businesses that reinvests in their community. Pizza King is truly making a difference for our patients” said Penny Short. “We are humbled by the continuous generosity.”

Contributions to the Allen Cancer Center are used to support patients undergoing radiation or medical oncology services. In addition to helping ensure the latest care is available, contributions such as the one from Pizza King help Nanticoke provide for classes and support groups, provide for patients needing help with transportation and medications, and other important support services for patients battling cancer.

Thank you to everyone at Pizza King for bringing awareness and for positively impacting the cancer patients in our community.
