San Francisco-based Patxi's Pizza announced that it has beaten its fundraising goal by 44 percent through its 52 Weeks of Giving Community Fundraising Program.
Patxi's started the program in 2010 with the goal of providing community support to organizations who share Patxi's passion for education and children's health and welfare, according to a company news release. This year, Patxi's raised more than $166,620 through 395 events. To date, the program has raised more than $315,277 for partner organizations with that shared mission.
"As parents and community members ourselves, Patxi's Pizza cares deeply about making sure that our children have the resources they need to lead happy and productive lives," said Bill Freeman, Patxi's co-founder and CEO. "We're proud of the support we've given to the Bay Area and now Denver. We are looking forward to doing the same in our new communities as we expand to Seattle and Santa Barbara in 2014."
