Tuesday, December 10, 2013

Chick-fil-A in Brainerd Village is supporting healthy communities by partnering with the 2013 Friends of Memorial campaign to raise awareness of chronic diseases – such as diabetes and heart disease – that are affected by nutrition and weight management. Funds will be raised Dec. 16–21 to support the Friends of Memorial Nutrition Education Room in Memorial’s new Diabetes and Nutrition Center, opening in July 2014.

Chick-fil-A in Brainerd will donate 10% of net sales during the week of Dec. 16-21 when customers identify themselves to a cashier as a Memorial supporter. Customers should say, “I’m here to support Memorial,” in the dining room or at the drive-thru window.

Nick Goebeler, store manager, will also have a drop box set up in the store for a special drawing at the end of the week for restaurant patrons.

If you are planning a holiday party for the week of Dec. 16-21, check out the catering menu for Chick-fil-A at Brainerd Village here or call 423 855-9880.
