Chick-Fil-A restaurants have been boycotted in the past for their founder’s support of anti-LGBT legislation, but that didn’t stop the employees at one location in Orlando from helping when tragedy struck over the weekend.
The Chick-Fil-A location on University Blvd in Orlando opened Sunday to make meals for the hundreds of people who were lined up to donate blood. Chick-Fil-A is traditionally closed on Sunday, but they sprung into action to help the community.
A spokesperson for the location said on their Facebook page,
“Our restaurant, along with a couple of others in the area, simply responded just like numerous other Orlando businesses and residents have done — we came together as a community to lift those in need.”
JetBlue is another company stepping up to do what they can to help, they’re offering free flights for immediate family members.
