Want to eat some pizza and help a worthy cause at the same time? Jewish Family Service of Tidewater is hosting an all day “Pizza with a purpose night” at California Pizza Kitchen, at both the Virginia Beach and Norfolk restaurants. Participants must present a special coupon, and CPK will donate 20% of the ticket to JFS for its Helping Hearts project.

Every year for the past seven years, JFS has coordinated the Helping Hearts project, which provides indigent adults with bags filled with basic necessities. Many of these adults have no family in the area to visit with during the holiday season, and many of them live monthly on less than what a tank of gas costs.

This year, the Helping Hearts project hopes to build upon its success of years past and collect enough toiletries, grooming items, snacks, socks, winter hats, gloves, novelties and even gift cards for incapacitated adults from ages 18 to 104. A number of these individuals are part of the JFS Personal Affairs Management (PAM) program for incapacitated adults.
