Springfield’s Incredible Pizza Company Teams up with Boys and Girls Town
SPRINGFIELD, MO. (December 1, 2009) – Make the holidays brighter for a child in need! Springfield’s Incredible Pizza Company will accept donations through December 18 for new, unwrapped toys. The family entertainment center is located at 2850 S. Campbell Avenue in Springfield, MO.
Many children in the care of Boys & Girls Town don’t have family to spend the holidays with or live with foster families who cannot afford gifts. Donated items will be used as holiday and birthday gifts for children at the Boys & Girls Town of Missouri-Springfield campus. In some cases, the toys collected from this drive will be the only gifts a child receives.
Chris Brewer, VP of Marketing for America’s Incredible Pizza Company said, “We help area charities and non-profits all year long, but we pay special attention to groups like the Boys & Girls Town during the holiday season.”
A game card valid for one free Springfield’s Incredible Pizza Company attraction (choice of Go-Karts, Bumper Cars, or Mini-Bowling) will be given for every donated toy. Donations should be appropriate for children ages birth through 21.
