Chick-fil-A has once again gone above and beyond the call of duty after preparing some 500 chicken sandwiches for weary police officers who had been responding to the mass shooting in Odessa, Texas.
When the management at Chick-fil-A Odessa, University Blvd, received news that a gunman had been on a rampage through the streets of their city, they allowed employees the choice to close early and go and be with their loved ones.
Instead, employees teamed up with another Chick-fil-A branch and prepared 500 sandwiches for the brave men and women in blue.
“Absolutely blown away by this amazing team of people,” the Odessa restaurant posted on Facebook. “After heartbreaking events in our community today we planned to close early and send our team home to be with their families. As they were walking out of the restaurant an opportunity to feed local law enforcement presented its self and they were given the option to help…not one person said no. Partnering with Chick-fil-A Odessa Town Center they cooked 500 sandwiches and packaged them with the most joyful hearts and a lot of love.”
The outlet went on to issue prayers for all those involved and declared its utter pride in the character of those working at the popular eatery.
“Sometimes light in a dark world looks as simple as a hot chicken sandwich,” it continued. “We just couldn’t be prouder of these helpers and their hearts of gold. Grateful is not an adequate word to express how we feel about all of our brave First Responders, they are true heroes. We are praying for our community in the days ahead and for all of those impacted by this tragedy.”
