Chick-fil-A of Burleson is helping those in need with by partnering with Meals-on-Wheels of Johnson and Ellis Counties to put a hot meal from Chick-fil-A in the hands of every needy person in the area.

Chick-fil-A is asking for a $5 donation to provide a hot meal and Meals-on-Wheels will deliver the meals in Johnson County on Thursday, Dec. 6 and 20.

“Last year, the Waxahachie Chick-fil-A participated in a similar effort in our neighboring county, Ellis, so this year, we have challenged the Burleson Chick-fil-A to do the same,” said Philip Browne, Waxahachie store owner, noting the Burleson store owner, Greg Ryan, gladly accepted.

“The Burleson community has always shown its big heart when it comes to meeting the needs its residents,” Ryan said. “And, I think this is a great collective effort to provide to those that are needy. We are happy to be a part.”

Collections can be made on site at the Burleson Chick-fil-A, or Meals-on-Wheels.

All costs beyond the $5 will be covered by Chick-fil-A and Meals-on-Wheels.

“This could be a great opportunity for you and your contacts to minister to our community and fill a very basic need in the process,” Ryan said.

“We are very excited about this project with Chick-fil-A,” said Amy Jackson, Meals-on-Wheels director of development. “Our clients will be delighted to receive a special treat.”
