How to celebrate National Detroit-Style Pizza Day with Buddy’s Pizza, The Salvation Army

Join in on the pizza fun on June 23

DETROITThe Salvation Army and Buddy’s Pizza are partnering up for National Detroit-Style Pizza Day. On June 23, for every pizza that is sold at a Buddy’s in Metro Detroit, a $1 donation will be made to the Salvation Army and 10% of orders will be donated to Gleaners.

The national day was founded by Buddy’s Pizza in 2021 to celebrate the history, style and roots of the pizza. According to a press release, last year Buddy’s donated over $7,000 to three community organizations to help fight hunger and homelessness.

“Through the support of Buddy’s Pizza and the community, The Salvation Army can continue to fight hunger and homelessness across Michigan,” said Lt. Colonel John Turner, divisional commander and regional chief executive officer for The Salvation Army Eastern Michigan Division. “The Salvation Army is grateful for the generosity of Buddy’s Pizza and all our supporters who make it possible to feed and shelter our community’s most vulnerable.”

Below is a list of restaurants across the United States that are donating a portion of its sales to help fight hunger and homelessness:
