INDIAN TRAIL – Common Heart will be the beneficiary of donations from the “Spreading MODness” campaign Nov. 18 to 22 at local MOD pizza locations.
A portion of every pizza sold during this time will be donated to help feed neighbors in need. All customers need to do is buy a pizza during this time period and a portion of their pizza purchase will be donated.
Participating MOD locations are Indian Trail (6720 Old Monroe Road), Matthews (10420 E. Independence Blvd., suite 880) Ballantyne (15127 Ballancroft Parkway, suite 100), Rivergate (14318 Rivergate View Drive, suite 500), Berewick (4830 Berewick Town Center Drive, suite B) and Mooresville (657 Brawley School Road, suite B).
With Common Heart’s mission to create a “small revolution of kindness,” while feeding the hungry, the nonprofit was the perfect fit as MOD’s local outreach partner for this event, said Matt Jamison, marketing manager for the restaurant group.
“Spreading MODness is an integral piece of MOD Pizza that gives us the opportunity to help others while doing what we do best – making pizzas,” he said.
Common Heart feeds about 3,000 people each month and has the largest food pantry operation in Union County. Volunteers and staff come together to run three weekly food pantries and four mobile food pantries. Last year, Common Heart also added a special senior box program providing extras for about 75 low-income seniors once a month.
The nonprofit is gearing up for its 13th annual Great Turkey Countdown – a Thanksgiving meal distribution providing frozen turkeys and all the fixings for 1,100 local families in need.
“We’re simply blown away that MOD Pizza chose us as the beneficiary of this amazing week-long fundraiser,” Executive Director Keith Adams said.
