Pita Pit is partnering with Make-A-Wish® Canada for the 4th year to help create hope for children with critical illnesses. The campaign will run from April 15 to May 14th, 2021 and will raise much needed funds by asking customers to make a donation when they purchase their item (online or in-store). Additionally, a generous donation of $1 from every pita sold will be made from participating locations on World Wish Day, which takes place annually on April 29th and marks the day when the first ever wish was granted which created Make-A-Wish.
“Pita Pit is both proud and honoured to have this relationship with Make-A-Wish®,” says Marina Leos, V.P. Franchisee & Community Engagement, Pita Pit Canada. “Their vision is directly aligned with what we care about the most – making a positive impact in peoples’ lives. The opportunity to contribute to wishes being granted for these very special children continues to keep us focused on what’s most important – during covid-challenging times and always.,”
For wish children and families, – finding hope in challenging circumstances is something they have been doing long before anyone heard the word “lockdown.” Robbed of the simple joys of childhood, hospital stays, doctor’s visits and painful treatments are their “normal.”
“Pita Pit has been an important National partner for Make-A-Wish over the years,” said Sheila Rees, Vice President of Development, Make-A-Wish Canada. “Their commitment to helping us create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses is inspiring. We are proud to partner with them again this year as we work tirelessly to deliver wishes for children within the limits of COVID-19 and to make preparations to address the significant backlog of wishes when the pandemic comes to an end. Support from partners like Pita Pit is critical as it helps us ensure that when life returns to normal, no child will have to wait for their already delayed wish.”
Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
