Feeling like pizza? The charity Cops For Kids With Cancer, Inc. wants you to go get pizza Monday or Tuesday. Heck, if you go both days they would love it.
Cops is teaming up with Bertucci’s restaurants to raise money for families who have a child battling cancer.
On Monday, May 8, and Tuesday, May 9, Bertucci’s restaurant in Massachusetts – including the South Brookline location – will donate 15 percent of those days’ proceeds to Cops For Kids With Cancer. The donated percentage applies to dine-in, carry out and delivery proceeds.
Cops For Kids With Cancer, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charity run by police officers and retired police officers, with 94 percent of all money raised given directly to qualifying families who need financial help, according to a press release from Cops with Kids for Cancer.
Since its establishment in 2002, Cops For Kids With Cancer, Inc. has helped more than 500 families through donations totaling more than $2.57 million. The organization is run entirely through a volunteer board of directors, has no paid employees, keeps its expenses low, and does not pay for fundraising assistance. Its funding comes solely from donations from police departments, police officers, companies, and compassionate individuals.
The Brookline Bertucci’s is in South Brookline along the VFW Parkway near Hancock Village.
