Chick-Fil-A, a Christian-owned fast food restaurant, is known for its strict policy to remain closed on Sundays to promote rest and worship. However the chain showed their compassion in a time of distress as North Texas was hit by tornadoes that killed at least 11 people this past weekend.
As a response to the devastation, Chick-Fil-A did something rare and opened their doors on a Sunday. The locations in North Texas were not available to the public, however, emergency responders and other tornado victims received free food from the restaurant. According to Fox4News.com, the chain has not been open on a Sunday since it was created in 1946.
The Texas natives were thankful to receive help from Chick-Fil-A as many were injured or lost their homes in the deadly tornadoes. Jared Guynes took to his Facebook to express his appreciation and encouraged people to support them to show theirs as well.
We have to agree that this is a cause worth breaking the rules for!
