Chick-fil-A, as any fan of the restaurant knows, is closed on Sundays. Normally. But this week Sunday was not normal as America awoke to the horror that took place in Orlando, Florida. In light of the tragic news, several Orlando locations of the Christian-owned restaurant chain and constant bogeyman of the paranoid left opened their doors and hearts on Sunday to help their fellow man.
As the Washington Examiner reports, they provided assistance, food and water, a place to sit down. They delivered free food and drinks to the police, fire, and rescue personnel at the scene. They volunteered in lines handing out supplies. They even gave out hundreds more to those who came to the Red Cross to give blood.
One store posted a photo on their Facebook page of their flag at half-mast with the message “God Bless the USA. Home is where the (heart) is. Orlando is our home. #prayfororlando.”
On Monday, the chain issued a statement saying: “Orlando is in our hearts and prayers.”
