Church's® Atlanta Restaurant Support Center Team Gives Back to the Community Bringing Comfort & Joy to 600 Kids and Their Families
Church's® Atlanta Restaurant Support Center Team, sponsored for the third year in a row, the 42nd Annual Atlanta Fire Rescue Department's (AFRD) Community Christmas Event for 600 kids and their families in need of extra help during the holidays. Coca-Cola joined Church's this year as a co-sponsor. The event was started by Fire Station 16 – the first station in Atlanta to hire African American fire fighters 42 years ago. They wanted to help the under-served communities in the neighborhood and started a Christmas lunch and donated toys for the kids.
Led by CEO, Jim Hyatt, Church's® employees also gave their gifts of time by volunteering at Fire Station 16 where the event took place. They served up Church's® awesome chicken, biscuits and sides and provided comfort and joy to so many kids who would not be able to celebrate Christmas without the AFRD, Church's Chicken® and Coca-Cola. Church's® was able to secure the donation of a tent from Atlanta's Peachtree Tents & Events so that the AFRD could invite more families in need of help this year.
Church's® invited Atlanta's FOX-TV's morning news anchor Karen Graham to host the event and serve lunch along side Atlanta's top Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran and Jim Hyatt and the leadership team.
Church's® Restaurant Support Center employees in Atlanta help prepare and serve Church's Chicken® meals to children fighting cancer and their families in partnership with the Open Arms program – part of the CURE Childhood Cancer initiative at both campuses of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.
