INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The lunch rush at Punch Burger was especially busy Tuesday afternoon.
Delivery business OrderUP is partnering with area restaurants to donate funds to the Indianapolis Police Foundation. The owners of OrderUP wanted to give back after IMPD Officer Perry Renn was killed in the line of duty. The business is partnering with a different restaurant each day this week to donate $2 for every order placed through the OrderUp website. Orders placed through participating restaurants will be delivered for free.
“We want to give back somehow to the officers obviously that are in the line of duty every day and risking their lives to make us safe here in the city,” said Daniel Sharrer, Co-owner of OrderUp Indianapolis.
Punch Burger partnered with OrderUp to deliver more than 60 burgers on Tuesday. The restaurant’s general manager said he thought it was a great way to give back.
“It’s a wonderful thing that we do here at Punch, we do it a lot as much as we possibly can especially for our officers that keep us safe it’s a really important thing that they do for us and the community so it’s a small thing that we can do to help out for all of our police officers that do so much for us,” said Matt McGraw, General Manager at Punch Burger.
The OrderUp schedule for the rest of the week is listed below:
- Wednesday: Scotty’s Brewhouse ($7.99 lunch specials)
- Thursday: Yat’s
- Friday: Loughmiller’s
