The fast food chain Chick-fil-A did something it’s never done before. In the wake of the deadly Orlando shootings, one of its locations in the city opened on a Sunday to make food for those waiting in line to donate blood.
Chick-fil-A has made news in the past for its owners’ stance on gay marriage, and for never being open on Sundays. However, the employees at this Orlando restaurant cooked hundreds of chicken sandwiches and dozens of gallons of sweet tea. They then went to the One Blood donation center and handed out the food and drinks, free of charge, to those waiting in line to donate, the DC Gazette reported.
The location on Orange Avenue also donated chicken biscuits and orange juice to first responders, police, and firemen, according to the store’s Facebook page.
Fifty people died in Sunday’s tragic shooting when a gunman pledging allegiance to ISIS opened fired at a gay club in Orlando.
