Compassionate Decision: Chick-fil-A opens on Sunday to aid disaster relief

chick-fil-a disaster reliefChick-fil-A restaurants have a policy of being closed on Sundays for religious reasons. Last week, however, some Chick-fil-A restaurants broke that policy for one of the best reasons imaginable - to aid disaster relief efforts.
 
On Dec. 27 multiple Chick-fil-A's in the Dallas area opened to cook a Sunday meal for victims of the flooding and tornadoes that swept through Texas.
 
Volunteers who worked at various area Chick-fil-A restaurants also prepared food for first responders.
 
Chick-fil-A boasts over 1,900 restaurants across 42 states and Washington DC. It recently passed Kentucky Fried Chicken as the highest selling chicken fast food chain in America.
 
The chain has been criticized in the past for endorsing Christian values that some argue limit the rights of employees.
 
This time there can be no criticism.
 
At least 11 people died during the post-Christmas storms and hundreds lost their homes. Those numbers are still growing.
 
Kudos to Chick-fil-A and its employees for doing what was necessary to help members of their communities in need. That's putting your money where your values are.
