A Pizza Hut In Sugar Land, Texas Is Delivering Free Pizzas To People Stuck In Their Homes During Hurricane Harvey
Pizza Hut is making a special delivery to Texas residents trapped in their homes by Hurricane Harvey.
Employees at the Oak Lake store in Sugar Land, Texas used kayaks to wade through flooded streets to deliver pizzas to victims who lived nearby – and it was all free of charge.
Shayda Habib, the manager of the Pizza Hut location, told KPRC 2 News that when she heard there were families nearby who couldn’t leave their homes and were running low on food she decided she needed to help.
“I called my husband and asked him to gather up kayaks and meet me at the restaurant,” she said.
Habib said she and some of the workers started making as many pizzas as they could and then loaded the food onto the kayaks and delivered them to the hungry families.
Habib told the Houston Chronicle that she and her employees delivered 120 pizzas on Tuesday to residents living in the area.
“The people in the houses didn’t expect us to come,” she told the outlet. “It was so nice to see their smiles after so much gloom.” – NY Daily News
It’s hard to look on the bright side when there’s so much damage and devastation happening in the Houston area, but Shayda Habib and Pizza Hut are doing their best to keep people’s spirits up. This is such a great move, and I hope to see more stories like this come out in the coming days and weeks. We’ve seen a ton of money being raised as well, most notably JJ Watt and $10 million You Caring campaign. Hopefully everyone down in Houston is able to stay safe, and may they have as much help as humanly possible during the recovery.
