The Salvation Army’s Boys & Girls Club in Lawton recently had the opportunity to ‘Eat More Chicken” thanks to a generous fundraising opportunity by Chick-Fil-A at Central Mall.
On select days in early June, customers at Chick-Fil-A were given the opportunity to purchase a sandwich that would be donated to The Salvation Army’s Boys & Girls Club. Throughout the promotion, over 100 sandwiches were purchased to help feed the kids a special lunch.
Tuesday, June 24th, the kids at the Club were assembled in the gymnasium as they always are before lunch time. While the club director was giving instructions and announcements, a surprise visitor entered from the side of the room – none other than the famous Chick-Fil-A Cow. The children erupted in cheers and laughter as the cow made its way through the gym, high-fiving and posing for photographs with the kids. After the cow ‘meet and greet’, lunch was served, and each child at the Boys & Girls Club was served a hot Chick-Fil-A sandwich.
The Salvation Army of Lawton would like to extend a special thank you to the Chick-Fil-A of Central Mall for their support and donation.
