When you win a year’s worth of pizza, what would you do? Wouldn’t you be thrilled to indulge in every slice of pizza goodness — every single week? Well, not for a young couple from Michigan.
Nineteen-year-old Hannah Spooner and her boyfriend Pete Kadry won $500 worth of pizza for a year from drawing in Little Caesar’s. Instead of indulging in their year-long pizza supply, the couple decided to donate all of the vouchers. Once Spooner got the call from Little Caesar’s, she searched for nearby non-profit organizations and finally decided to donate the vouchers to Covenant House Michigan, a shelter for homeless children and adolescents.
In an interview with FOX2 Detroit, Spooner shared that she has decided to donate the vouchers even before winning and wanted to make a difference through her donation if ever she won.

Spooner said, “I just know there are other people out there who have nothing. And I don’t think I should be eating a year’s worth of free pizza when there are people who go hungry at night.”
“I could tell it would actually make a difference,” would actually see people who benefited from it. They were really sweet, warm and welcoming.” Spooner told Inside Edition.
The workers from the Covenant were very grateful for the generosity of the young couple. They usually serve three meals a day at the Covenant and surely the kids would be thrilled having pizzas.
“I look at young people and they believe it’s very important to give back to the community,” said one of Covenant House’s administrators. “But I don’t know if they would give pizza back. This was wonderful to find out that someone cared enough about these young people here at Covenant House to provide this pizza for them.”
Truly, this couple’s generosity has made a difference in their community with every slice of pizza. It shows how we can be of service and help to others through simple actions and how we can put others in need first before our selves.
