J. J. Watt partners with pizza chain to help kids in school
HOUSTON, TX – The Houston Texans need a recipe for success this football season. One player in particular has already started cooking and that’s defensive lineman J.J. Watt.
Every Tuesday during the season, 70 Papa John’s stores will donate 10% of sales to the ‘Justin J. Watt Foundation.’
“70 stores, that’s a lot of money, and that’s a whole lot of money that’s gonna help a whole lot of kids,” Watt says.
The owner of the 70 Papa Johns stores in the Houston area, Keith Sullins added, “This was a way to really get J.J. involved to help us get some money back to these kids.”
The money will provide kids in Houston and Wisconsin, who want to get involved in after-school athletics, to learn teamwork and accountability.
Watt further stated, “The opportunity to give back to the community, to give back to the kids who don’t have as much as I had growing up. It’s so much fun and it’s so great to see the kids when they get their equipment.”
If you order pizza on Tuesdays, you may have a pizza delivered by J.J. Watt personally. One lucky customer will win a pizza party with J.J. for 10 people.
So, Watt scores extra points for kids through his foundation, but will the Texans as a team be able to deliver?
