Boloco teams up with David Ortiz and his Children’s Fund
Boloco will partner up with Big Papi for his Children’s Fund on the Boston Red Sox slugger’s last day at bat. John Pepper, CEO and co-founder of the burrito chain, says Boloco will launch the Big Papi’s Kitchen Burrito (BPK Burrito). For each one sold, $1 will go to the David Ortiz Children’s Fund, a charitable organization that helps children both here in New England and in Ortiz’ native Dominican Republic who do not have access to surgeries or other pediatric needs.David’s number is 34 and the goal of the campaign is to raise $34,000, Boloco’s Pepper explains. In a release announcing the new alliance, Pepper observes: “Getting to customize a special burrito for one of our local heroes is a pretty big honor, and to have it go to such a great cause makes it even more special.”We’re all going to have fun making a positive difference this summer. Ortiz is killing it this year, too, which makes it all the better!” The partnership, he declares, is a way of saying thank you to Big Papi for his work with children in need.
