Pizza Hotline Fundraiser

Nothing tastes better than a nice slice of pizza…and nothing feels better then helping someone out. Why not combine the two? Charles County Teen Court and Pizza Hotline La Plata are working together to raise funds to help support the Teen Court Program, a juvenile justice diversion program in which first-time offenders between the ages of 13 and 17 are judged by a jury of their peers and offered the opportunity to accept accountability for their minor crimes without having to incur a permanent record. Make a purchase on one of the following dates between 2 p.m. – 10 p.m. and Pizza Hotline will donate a portion of proceeds to Teen Court! Thank you in advance!
