Chattanooga-area Chick-fil-a restaurants recently wrapped up their “Cookies for a Cause” campaign benefiting the Believe Campaign for Children’s Hospital at Erlanger. The month long initiative garnered over $8,900 in support of area children.

During the month of June, area Chick-fil-A restaurants sold 6-count packages of Chick-fil-A Chocolate Chunk Cookies and donated a percentage of sales to the Believe Campaign. The money raised through the “Cookies for a Cause” will stay local to benefit sick and injured children in the Chattanooga community.

“Chick-fil-A’s generosity and enthusiasm supporting our local children sets a precedent for community engagement across the Chattanooga region, stated Beth Agee, director of Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger. 

Phase 1 of the new Children’s Hospital at Erlanger consists of a 90,000 square foot outpatient center, currently under construction on E. Third Street. Upon completion, the Children’s Hospital Outpatient Center will provide more than 20 pediatric subspecialties and the highest level of care to the children of this region. The new facility is scheduled to open in December.
