RALEIGH, CARY, WAKE FOREST, APEX, FUQUAY-VARINA, GOLDSBORO, FAYETTEVILLE and WILMINGTON, N.C. — Papa Murphy’s Take ‘n’ Bake Pizza is asking pizza lovers to join them in raising money for a good cause this holiday season. By partnering with UNC Children’s Wednesday, Dec. 1, 2021, through Friday, Dec. 31, 2021, Papa Murphy’s will donate 33% of sales from the entire month in-store and online to support the N.C. Children’s Hospital. Customers will need to mention “UNC Children’s”, show a post on their mobile device, or enter code “UNC33” when they order online to participate.
Including walk-in, call-in, and online orders, the month-long initiative aims to raise awareness and supportive fundraising for the N.C. Children’s Hospital, which cares for more than 70,000 children from all 100 counties in North Carolina each year. As a top-tier academic medical center, UNC Children’s upholds a four-tiered mission to “CARE,” aligning clinical care, advocacy, research and education to deliver world-class family-centered care—always regardless of a family’s ability to pay.
“It’s a privilege to once again partner with one of America’s best children’s hospitals. We hope our efforts will continue to support their mission in providing critical care to children across our state,” shares Richard Averitte, Vice President of Marketing for Papa Murphy’s franchisee Twickenham Holdings LLC.
Thirteen Papa Murphy’s North Carolina locations are participating this December. To find the most convenient location, visit https://order.papamurphys.com/locations/NC. All participating Papa Murphy’s Take ‘n’ Bake Pizza locations are open from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. Both walk-in orders and orders placed online at https://order.papamurphys.com/ will add to the fundraising efforts, which will be celebrated with a special check presentation the week of Jan. 10, 2022.

“We are so thankful for the continued community support we have received from Papa Murphy’s Pizza,” says Cameron Shoaf, Coordinator of Special Events at UNC Children’s. “Having the support of community partners like Papa Murphy’s means so much to our hospital, families and kids. From spirit nights and weeks, to Pizza for Peds, and the We’re on Your Side campaign, to the upcoming spirit month for UNC Children’s, they have been and continue to be a true partner and supporter of our children’s hospital. They are always ready and willing to ‘Say Yes’ and help in whatever way they can. Through the more than $8,236 they have donated to our ‘Say Yes’ Fund over the past two years, we have been able to help many of our families in need.
“The UNC Children’s ‘Say Yes’ Fund supports the hospital’s greatest needs at any given moment. While we proudly offer care regardless of a family’s ability to pay, unfortunately, many families’ financial strains get worse when their child is hospitalized. We are able to provide assistance to families who need help making ends meet while their child is under our care by purchasing medical equipment for children with special needs, giving parking and meal vouchers while a child is undergoing treatment, or funding a research project to find better treatments. The flexibility of this fund allows us to adapt to an ever-changing health care environment, ensuring we meet whatever challenge may lie ahead for our patients.”
