Letter: Pizza it forward

On Saturday afternoon, July 29, the power went out in South Rifle. All of the stores and restaurants were on hold. I was leaving the Walmart parking lot when I witnessed an act of kindness.

Little Caesar’s Pizza was one of the businesses without power. I’m sure after a certain time had elapsed without the warmers, they are no longer able to sell the ready-made pizzas.

I would think the normal practice would be to throw the product out, but I have never worked there, so I’m speculating. Anyway, they didn’t.

The staff came out of the store and walked the pizzas over to a few homeless people in the parking lot. Say what you want about giving panhandlers items, all I know is these people must have been truly hungry because they cheered with joy. Pay it forward.

Way to go, Little Caesar’s.
