The Sartell Girl's Basketball team enjoys their Chick-fil-A after a morning practice.

On Saturday, February 17th, Chick-fil-A delivered free chicken sandwiches along with chips, cookies, and beverages to the Sartell Girl’s Basketball team after their morning practice. Chick-fil-A is a chain restaurant located in St. Cloud, MN near Crossroads mall.

Chick-fil-A has had a giving policy since founder S. Truett Cathy began the restaurant. According to the company, Chick-fil-A has donated over $68 million to charity and education since it was founded.

Founder S. Truett Cathy dedicated his life to giving back to the community, which eventually pushed him to keep Chick-fil-A a private company. Although Cathy could’ve had a great payday making the company public, Cathy aspired to keep full control over the company to ensure that Chick-fil-A kept giving back to the community.

Chick-fil-A takes open donation requests, so if you’re interested in getting free food for your organization, fill out this form.

Nearly every moment of every day we have the opportunity to give something to someone else – our time, our love, our resources.  I have always found more joy in giving when I did not expect anything in return.”
