Papa John’s Pearland locations commit Wednesday profits to slain HPD officer’s family
HOUSTON – Two Pearland locations of Papa Johns’ pizza committed all profits on Wednesday, Dec. 11, to the family of slain Houston Police Officer, Sgt. Christopher Brewster’s family, according to Assistant Manager Greg Marsella.
Brewster, 32, was shot and killed Saturday as he responded to a domestic violence report in east Houston. He was a nine-year veteran of the Houston Police Department and was recently promoted to sergeant.
A public visitation will be held for Brewster on Wednesday with a funeral service scheduled for 10 a.m. on Thursday. Times for the visitation and funeral service are yet to be announced.
The two Papa John’s locations donating proceeds to Brewster’s family are:
Old Town Pearland
Address: 3405 East Broadway Street
Phone No: (281) 412-0202
Address: 10223 Broadway Street
Phone No: (281) 412-7272
The Assist the Officer Foundation tweeted a flyer about the Papa John’s donations announcement.
“To show your support, you can order from either Pearland Papa John’s locations, or just drop by for a visit and give a cash donation,” the flyer reads. “Donations can also be given directly to the Assist the Officer Foundation at www.assisttheofficer.com.”

“Sergeant Brewster was a true hero and our sincerest condolences go out to his family during this time,” Papa John’s Houston President Keith Sullins said in a press release. “With the help of the Houston community, we want to show our support for Sergeant Brewster’s family, and we hope that everyone will join us next week in giving back.”
Correction:A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that the Papa John's will be committing all sales and profits on Dec. 11, to the Brewster family. They have committed only profits from that day.
