120 pizzas

According to Habib, their team prepared 120 pizzas and packed them right into the kayaks. The restaurant crew paddled through the floodwaters to bring these pan pizzas to the homes of the hurricane victims, KCRA reported.

These pizza boxes were delivered to the homes for free. The restaurant manager told KCRA that they paddled through the waters that rose up as high as their chest. The families were reportedly not expecting them to come to their residences, and they were smiling upon receiving the treats.

Habib also noted that the free pizza delivery will continue on September 6 and September 7. They are going to do this until the store runs out of supplies, the report added.

Pizza Hut franchisee James Bodenstedt told the NBC News affiliate in Houston that the company is proud of such a responsive team.
