Impact Stories, Our Partners

Using the Power of Pizza to Transform Lives Through Literacy

Case Study: Pizza Hut
First Book and Pizza Hut partnered to launch The Literacy Project: a global commitment to literacy and reading

Pizza Hut selected First Book as its global partner to implement a multi-year fundraising effort focused on helping those who need it most reach their full potential. The Literacy Project was launched as a fundraising and awareness campaign to enable access to reading, empower teachers, and inspire a love of reading.

I know First Book’s model and I’ve seen the way it delivers powerful results to support its important mission. This is a social enterprise that is well positioned to take the power of its proven model to a global scale.
