Donation Requests Pappas Donations
We're a family company and that includes our staff, our Guests and the communities we serve. Therefore, we believe our contributions are best spent helping those at home in our local communities. This grassroots style of giving enables our employees to identify with and support organizations that make a difference to the people in the community. When we do support national causes, we ask that the funds remain local to benefit those in the geographies where they are raised.

We at Pappas Restaurants are proud of the support we have been able to provide to the quality of life in our community, and we hope to continue in the years ahead.
