A Sweet Donation

Cherokee Chick-fil-A restaurants team up to raise money for MUST Ministries

A Sweet Donation

Chick-fil-A restaurants in Cherokee County raised $4,170.29 for MUST Ministries through a special milkshake promotion this fall. Chick-fil-A gave a coupon for a free milkshake to any customer who donated $2 or more.

The four locations joined efforts to raise the money, which will be used to prepare the new MUST facility that’s set to open on Brown Industrial Boulevard in January.

On hand for the check presentation were, Ron Hammock, manager of the Dwarf House on Ga. 92; Howard Cox, Capital Campaign/MUST Ministries; the restaurant’s cow mascot; Dr. Ike Reighard, President and CEO of MUST; and Kevin Williams, Franchised Restaurant Operator of the two Canton restaurants. Scott Hall, Franchised Restaurant Operator of Chick-fil-A in Towne Lake, also participated.

MUST serves 11,000 Cherokee clients each year, providing groceries, clothing, education, employment and other assistance.  www.mustministries.org.
