Church’s Chicken and Fire Station 16 Continue Another Season of Giving

Annual Holiday Luncheon Provides Food and Toys for 500+ Atlanta Children & Families

Church's Chicken and Fire Station 16 Continue Another Season of GivingFor the sixth year in a row, Church’s Chicken has partnered with Atlanta’s historic Fire Station 16 to bring the gifts of a much-needed hot meal and toys for children to more than 500 area residents. As in years past, Church’s donated its classic hand-battered all-natural fried chicken, honey-butter biscuits, and delicious sides as the luncheon main course. The popular restaurant brand also teamed up with other sponsors such as Coca-Cola and the Atlanta Fire & Rescue Department to provide toys to be distributed by Santa himself as part of the event.

“Everyone deserves a holiday season filled with good cheer,” said Mark Snyder, Chief Marketing Officer at Church’s Chicken. “Fire Station 16’s Annual Holiday Luncheon is an excellent example of a community coming together to make that happen. We are honored to once again participate in bringing smiles and the spirit of the season to everyone who lives in the Atlanta communities we serve.”

Held on December 3rd at Fire Station 16 – the luncheon event featured community leaders along with Church’s new CEO, Joseph Christina. Now in its 46th year, the Holiday Luncheon continues to grow in size, support, and stature as one of the area’s most respected holiday giving traditions.

“Our hope is that warm hearts can start with a hot, tasty meal and that simple acts of kindness can start a chain reaction of good will that impacts everyone,” continued Snyder.
