Couple wins free pizza for a year, donates all of it to charity
A young metro Detroit couple is serving up a heaping helping of kindness.
Hannah Spooner and Pete Kadry recently won a contest earning them free Little Caesars pizza for an entire year. The prize includes 52 pies in all.
But instead of pigging out, Hannah got a great idea. She and Pete donated all of the vouchers for the pizzas to Covenant House Michigan, an organization helping homeless children and young adults with nowhere else to turn.
"I knew before we had won that I was going to donate it,: Spooner said. "(Pete) said 'You wouldn't even keep a couple' and I said no. If I won it they would all be donated. I knew right away.
"I just know there are other people out there who have nothing. And I don't think I should be eating a year's worth of free pizza when there are people who go hungry at night."
Covenant House workers were grateful for the couple's generosity.
"I look at young people and they believe it's very important to give back to the community," said one of Covenant House's administrators. "But I don't know if they would give pizza back. This was wonderful to find out that someone cared enough about these young people here at Covenant House to provide this pizza for them."
Covenant house provides three meals a day to its residents. But they say take-out pizza is always a special treat. To learn more about the work Covenant House does, CLICK HERE for the website.
