The giving season is right around the corner, and many need to survive through the winter. Thankfully, Jet’s Pizza, known for delicious Detroit-style pizza, has taken the initiative to help underserved youth spread cheer with delicious (free) pizzas through the blistery Chicago winter. As they host their 2nd annual Winter Drive throughout the month of November, Jet’s is looking for children’s winter accessories, including new or like-new hats, gloves, scarves, and fresh pairs of socks.
To help rally for as many donations as possible to benefit the children of Chicago Youth Programs, those that donate a requested item within the month will receive a small, one-topping pizza free of charge as a thank you from Jet’s for their kindness.
Jet’s Pizza 2nd Annual Winter Drive
as they welcome the return of their 2nd annual winter drive, Jet’s Pizza® invites customers to join forces in keeping at-risk youth warm this year.
The drive will run from Monday, November 1, through Tuesday, November 30. Supplies raised will support the non-profit organization’s 37-year journey to improve health and life opportunities for at-risk youth ages 3-25.
For years, Jet’s has earned a reputation for its passion for giving back to the neighborhoods they serve. As a life-long Chicagoan, David Falato, the owner of Jet’s Pizza Chicagoland, has seen our city suffering and realized that our kids are getting left behind the most.
“We have taken young men and women and have given them lifelong careers and have worked to support our community with drives like our annual winter drive for Chicago Youth Programs! ” Said David Falato of Jet’s Pizza Chicagoland.

Chicago Youth Programs (CYP) endeavors to serve the comprehensive needs of each youth with an asset-based approach that intends to mitigate risks while building strengths.
By making a long-term investment, CYP strikes for creating a long-term impact. With their unique approach, CYP’s involvement can begin as early as birth. This can last until age 25 when the organization expects young adults to be ready for the real world and establish a fulfilling career of their own.
Additionally, Chicago Youth Programs believes in the pursuit of equity and access on behalf of each of our youth. It is the organization’s mission to create equitable access to quality education, comprehensive healthcare, skill development, and career opportunities.
Jet’s Pizza® was founded in 1978 by Eugene and John Jetts in Sterling Heights, Michigan, and has grown to over 380 independently owned and operated stores in 19 states, continuing to commit to quality at each location.
“The taste and crunch of our square is truly addicting, even as a franchisee for almost 10 years I am still in love with it. In addition, we have built a family with our stores,” said David.
While quality and taste are number one, Jet’s Pizza also strives to make customers happy with every order they make. Better, Because It Has to Be.
