Regional pizza delivery chain Pizza Boli’s partnered with United Way of Central Maryland last week to help feed homeless and volunteers during their Project Homeless Connect event. The event took place October 2, 2014 at the Baltimore Convention Center from 11am to 5pm. Throughout the duration of the event, Pizza Boli’s locations in Remington, Walbrook and Federal Hill all worked to bake around 1,500 large cheese pizzas to be picked-up and taken to the event.

According to the event website, Project Homeless Connect is a national model for helping the homeless community by bringing together services to meet every need into one place at one time. This model has been recognized by the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) and has been replicated in nearly 300 cities throughout the United States.

The event provides on-site services for the local homeless community, such as medical exams and screenings, haircuts, legal advice, identification, access to healthy food, and more. Participating homeless and at-risk individuals and families are paired with a volunteer guide, who helps participants navigate the various services and share the experience of the event.

Pizza Boli’s is an active part of communities across the Mid-Atlantic area. The very first Pizza Boli’s opened its doors in the Baltimore, Maryland neighborhood of Mount Washington in 1985. From its inception, giving back to the communities that Pizza Boli’s serves has been a key factor in the company’s culture. Additionally, October is National Pizza Month, so “rather than giving out free or discounted pizzas to customers to celebrate, we thought why not give them to people who truly need a good, warm meal and make a difference?,” stated Pizza Boli’s Marketing Director, Maroula Giannaros.
