"As far as boxtops go, since we primarily promote our free community events, I don't have much data on success rates. However, I can say with confidence that for the level of resources and time spent, there is no better way to reach our target audience than landing in the hands of nearly 2000 who live and work nearby. We have been appreciative of being able to promote a variety of free family friendly events through the boxtops and partnership with you guys."

Also, we were able to use some of your generous coupons to feed our work crews at our Christmas distribution center earlier this month. And, all the coupons were a huge hit with our clients and volunteers at the center. Everyone was just so excited to get "free Papa John's" coupons when they came to select gifts for their children for Christmas this year. Believe me, they brought bright lights into their eyes and frequently said..."We love Papa John's Pizza!". Thanks to each and all of you for helping make Christmas that much more merry for the folks in the community. We wish you and your team a very Merry Christmas and a new year filled with happiness and peace."

"Thank you for your recent contribution to the Chesterfield-Colonial Heights Christmas Mother fundraising auction held on November 8th at the Cultural Center of India. It was through the generosity of folks like you that we were able to have such a successful event. Additionally, everyone enjoyed the venue, the good food, and had a lot of fun bidding on some very exciting silent and live auction items. And successful we were! Through the support of our community we were able to raise more than $46,000. This year's auction was a roaring success! This amount will enable the Christmas Mother to achieve our mission of providing toys, clothing, and food for many needy children in our own area. These gifts will make the eyes of children shine brightly at Christmas this year. We are especially appreciative of your generosity during these difficult economic times. Thank you for sharing your blessings with those less fortunate in our own neighborhoods."

This year’s Relay for Life event at Pocahontas Middle School was exceptional and most of that was because of our last minute partnership. You and your company are incredible. I have always loved your product and I did purposely look to push our Relay efforts towards your company based on the product and reputation, alone.
What we got in return was far greater than we could have imagined. The Lauderdale location was phenomenal. Their professionalism, on a busy Saturday was truly commendable. The turned out more pizzas than we had originally asked for and when we called for a “third order” at 8:00pm, without blinking, your team made it happen. The “Dollars for Dough” pizza coupon code idea is simply brilliant. I was surely impressed by how quickly you made that happen. Again, far above every expectations. Our thoughts are that we will look to expand our relationship into many of our school ventures. Partnering with Papa John’s will be a Pocahontas Middle School staple.
You are an amazing company run by truly exceptional people. Thank you!
Mr. Jimmy Milcarek - Pocahonotas Middle School
