The “Hump Day Pizza by the Slice” fundraiser has been scheduled to benefit people with developmental disabilities and delays.
All proceeds are earmarked for infants, toddlers and adults who rely on Sunflower Diversified Services for early intervention, as well as programs that provide options for employment and independent living.
The event is set for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 4, at Sunflower’s 1521 K-96 location where a Papa Murphy’s pizza trailer will set up shop.
The price of a one-topping, hot-out-of-the-oven slice of pizza, and a bottle of water is $3. An extra slice will add $2, while a large pizza is $16.
This applies only to carry-out orders of beef, pepperoni and cheese pizza. Specialty pizza is not available.
“We invite the community to stop by for a take-out lunch and support their neighbors who need a helping hand,” said Connie Oetken, Sunflower director of development. “All proceeds during this special event will help provide services and adaptive equipment for the people Sunflower serves.
“Those who support people with disabilities can be assured all donations remain in our local communities,” Oetken noted. “While tax dollars provide many services, there are big gaps in financing. People with disabilities must rely on private donations to fill those gaps.”
Sunflower, a non-profit agency in its 49th year, serves infants, toddlers and adults in Barton, Pawnee, Rice, Rush and Stafford counties.
