We support our community through corporate responsibility programs
Vreau în clasa a noua” is a project dedicated to children from rural areas, for which the school year ends much earlier than it should. In collaboration with World Vision Romania, we support the children who don’t have the resources but are willing to keep on studying. Right now, there are 120 children that KFC and Pizza Hut support on an annual basis, through a number of monthly scholarships that cover their expenses for school and offer them access towards a better life.
Following the 2016 edition of the program, KFC together with Pizza Hut donated 117.000 euro to World Vision Romania.
Since 2004, we decided to get involved in a new CSR project, contributing to improve a major problem that the Romanian society is facing: the drop out of school children coming from families with poor material capabilities. We are part of this community and we wish to actively contribute to shape it as harmoniously as possible, so in 2015 the Hot Bucket from the KFC menu became “Bucket for good”: for every bucket purchased by our clients we donate 1 leu for the SOS Satele Copiilor organization. In just 10 months, the project had an unexpected success and we donated more than 50.000 euro to the organization, in order to support two houses from the SOS village which cover the food, clothing, medical care and educational activities.
Harvest is an international program aiming to reduce food waste, to support the communities in need and to reduce the ecological footprint. The Harvest program is implemented in various countries as USA, Puerto Rico, Great Britain, Canada, Spain, Italy, South Africa and now also in Eastern Europe.
The project developed by Pizza Hut and Pizza Hut Delivery through HOSPICE House of hope has the purpose to support the palliative care services that this organization offers for free to children and adults that are diagnosed with incurable diseases. The partnership consists in donating 1 leu for every European Pizza, medium and large, on any crust, sold in Pizza Hut and Pizza Hut Delivery restaurants in Romania.
With the support from Pizza Hut and Pizza Hut Delivery, the HOSPICE House of Hope which will be able to continue their mission, to care for those that face an excruciating diagnosis, with professionalism and dedication, and to develop the palliative care on a national level.
