Chick-fil-A Restaurants Donate 1,200 Sandwiches During Colorado Fires
When several wildfires displaced residents in Colorado, local Operators responded with chicken sandwiches.
Several wildfires in Colorado drove hundreds from their home in the spring of 2012. One of these fires, in Conifer, just outside of Denver, filled a middle school and a high school with displaced homeowners and firefighters called in from several surrounding states.
As soon as Lauren Plain, Operator of the Chick-fil-A at nearby Jefferson Village, heard about the fire, she went to work, recruiting two other local Chick-fil-A owners, to get hot meals to those in need. Lauren, along with Jonathan Lovette, Operator at Southwest Plaza Mall, and John Barker, Operator at Belleview Shores, distributed 1,210 chicken sandwiches to firefighters, EMTs, police, Red Cross workers, and other volunteers.
"It was the most incredible opportunity to help during such a difficult time for the residents and volunteer workers," Lauren said.
