Chicken Salad Chick Focusing On Giving Back To The Community

Tuesday, May 17, 2016

Over the past week, Chicken Salad Chick has donated $350 to the Forgotten Child Fund and provided free platters to the new Chattanooga Police Command Center as they continue to combat the violence that’s plagued city streets in recent weeks.   

In addition to the donations, Chicken Salad Chick is sponsoring Chattanooga Police Sergeant Austin Garrett in this year’s Dancing with the Chattanooga Stars competition. Chicken Salad Chick is hosting a fundraiser for Sergeant Garrett at its downtown and East Brainerd locations on Tuesday, May 24. A portion of the sales from that day will benefit Sergeant Garrett’s cause, the Partnership’s Rape Crisis Center which provides healing to victims of rape and sexual assault.  

“Our team is thrilled to sponsor Garrett, not only for the great work the Chattanooga Police Department does, but also in support of the Partnership," said Josh Patton, franchise owner.  "Giving back to the community is one of our main priorities at Chicken Salad Chick and we’re happy to help out in any way we can." 

Sergeant Garrett will compete in Dancing with the Chattanooga Stars on Saturday, June 25, at the Tivoli.
