Throughout the month of June, the regional and family-owned Barro’s Pizza raised $40,000 to help Arizona families affected by pediatric cancer.
The pizza joint donated a portion of every lunch special sold last month, and will now donate the proceeds to the Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children. The nonprofit directly provides financial assistance to families for living expenses, treatment and prescriptions, travel expenses for treatment, funeral expenses, and more.
“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.
The donation will serve a minimum of 80 families this year, and will also be used to help out with the challenges families are facing due to COVID-19.
“We reached our goal once again of donating $40,000, and we have our customers to thank for that,” said Barro. “We are so grateful that our customers continue to support our efforts to help others in our community.”
“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,” said Chrisie Funari, President and founder of Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children. “We can’t thank them, and their customers, enough for their continued support.”
Barro’s Pizza is located at 410 N. Wilmot Rd. and in Marana at 5884 W. Arizona Pavilions Dr. For more information, call (520) 682-3969 or visit barrospizza.com.
