Chick-fil-A tea sales to help Red Cross | Business
A popular chicken sandwich restaurant has come up with a sweet deal for helping the American Red Cross. Chick-fil-A® restaurants across southeast Alabama will donate $1 for every gallon of sweet or unsweet tea sold in August to local American Red Cross chapters.
Five Chick-fil-A restaurants in Montgomery and eight additional locations from Prattville to Dothan will participate in the organization’s disaster relief drive.
All funds raised from the tea sales will support the Red Cross’s efforts in southeast Alabama related to recent natural disasters.
The funds will also support future relief efforts related to wildfires, tornadoes, droughts and hurricanes.
“Our friends and neighbors in this area have experienced some tragic events in the last few months,” said Chick-fil-A at Colonial Promenade Marketing Director Knox Bannister. “The Red Cross has a strong impact on the well-being of our community, and we are proud to support their relief efforts in central Alabama and the gulf coast.
The American Red Cross is the nation’s premier emergency response organization.
Since their founding in 1917, the Central Alabama and Gulf Coast chapters of the Red Cross have provided guidance and relief to disaster victims in the area, which includes 19 counties.
