After having lunch at Little Caesar’s one afternoon, Hannah Spooner, a 19-year-old Michigan resident, and her boyfriend Pete Kadry entered a sweepstakes to win free pizza for a year. That decision paid off, the couple took home the grand prize—and now, they're paying it forward, Fox News Detroit reports.

Spooner gifted the pies—52 pizza vouchers valued at $500—to local charity Covenant House Michigan, a nonprofit organization that provides shelter, vocational programs, and three meals a day to homeless and at-risk youth in Detroit.

"I just lost a lot of weight, I wasn't trying to eat a lot of pizza," Spooner joked with Inside Edition. "Detroit is going through a lot of negativity," Spooner told InsideEdition.com. "I wanted somewhere close to home that would be affected by my donation."

Employees at Covenant House admitted they were surprised. "I look at young people and they believe it's very important to give back to the community," an administrator from Covenant House said in the video below. "But I don't know if they would give pizza back."
