Pip’s Original Doughnuts is known both for its fried-to-order mini doughnuts and owner Nate Snell’s community-first business practices. A recent podcast by storyteller Brandon Harvey introduced Snell’s “community, not competition” business model, and now Pip’s Original is launching a campaign to benefit two causes simultaneously: 1) to help the Pastrami Zombie food truck recoup loses related to a break-in and snowstorms, and 2) to raise money to benefit the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization (IRCO).

The deal runs January 30 through February 3, and here’s how it works. Buy any sandwich at Pastrami Zombie, located at 5429 NE 42nd Ave., and get a dozen Pip’s Original doughnuts for free. Pip’s will then donate a percentage of the retail value of the dozen doughnuts to IRCO.

Wondering what you’ll find at Pastrami Zombie? It’s the new, sizzling-hot food truck by sandwich queen, Melissa McMillan, who also runs Ashland’s popular Sammich. The reuben is already legendary, and all of the sandwiches feature house-brined and cured meats, from turkey to pastrami.

Here’s the full announcement, from Pip’s Original Doughnut’s Instagram:
