Papa Gino’s, D’Angelo spread love to local heroes

By Staff | Aug 22, 2020

DEDHAM, Mass. – Over the course of 10 weeks, Papa Gino’s and D’Angelo Grilled Sandwiches donated 480 extra large pizzas and 1,500 sandwiches to 80 health care facilities across New England through their respective community donation programs. The Papa Gino’s program is called Pizza My Heart, and the D’Angelo program is called EveryDAy Heroes.

Last week, Papa Gino’s delivered meals to the staff of Kiddie Konnection Inc. in Hudson.

The programs recognize those working in hospitals, assisted living facilities, urgent care clinics and other front-line industries.

Building on the success of these programs, and inspired by the heroes already recognized, Papa Gino’s and D’Angelo have decided to continue with these weekly deliveries, now expanding the potential recipients to any group or organization who stands out in their community. This could be first responders, grocery store employees, animal shelters, day care centers and others – the program is open to all heroes and will run for 10 weeks.

Recipients of the Pizza My Heart program will receive up to seven extra large pizzas, and recipients of the EveryDAy Heroes program will receive up to 30 sandwiches and bags of chips.

The primary method of nominating recipients for the donations is to fill out the quick and easy nomination forms at:

• Pizza My Heart: https://forms.gle/R5pUBzVny3rRAAry6.

• EveryDAy Heroes: https://forms.gle/m36jAuPVfPbrbzAB9.

“One thing 2020 has taught us is that there are heroes in many forms across all our New England communities, and we want to do our part to celebrate the people in our towns who are making a difference,” said Deena McKinley, CMO of Papa Gino’s and D’Angelo Grilled Sandwiches.
