Chicken Salad Chick of Cullman presented a $9,400 check to The Link of Cullman earlier today. The money raised through Chicken Salad Chick’s “Giving Card” annual fundraiser is intended to be given to a local non-profit to help with their local food bank. The Link of Cullman is the first recipient in Cullman to receive the benefits. 

There are currently 173 Chicken Salad Chick locations, and with the help of Cullman customers, the Cullman location ranked 4th in the amount of funds raised to give back to local charities. Chicken Salad Chick would like to thank Cullman’s patrons for making this year’s annual fundraiser a huge success. 

Melissa Betts, Director of The Link of Cullman, was honored to be the first recipient in Cullman to receive the check from Chicken Salad Chick. $9,400 is a lot of money to a local food bank, and there is no doubt The Link of Cullman will make the absolute best of the funds.

What is the Giving Card?

The Giving Card is the annual fundraiser on behalf of the Chicken Salad Chick Foundation to raise funds for local food charities in our communities. Every purchase directly impacts your local community!

How Does it Work?

When you purchase a Giving Card for $5 at Chicken Salad Chick, all of the net proceeds go to the local food bank or charity in your area. In exchange for your donation, you’ll receive one special offer per month at Chicken Salad Chick, valued at $60 in Chick offers. 

Stacy and Kevin Brown’s true purpose was to have a positive impact on people, and the duo saw the opportunity for a philanthropic avenue within just a few months of opening the first Chicken Salad Chick location. After Kevin’s diagnosis of stage 4 colon cancer that had spread to his liver, the Chicken Salad Chick Foundation’s direction became clear. Through fundraisers such as its annual Teeing Off On Cancer Golf Classic, the CSC Foundation can make sizeable donations to local cancer centers, as well as the American Cancer Society. The CSC Foundation hosted Music & Miracles Superfest in 2016 at Jordan-Hare Stadium featuring headliner Kenny Chesney plus Miranda Lambert, Sam Hunt, and Old Dominion, raising $200,000 for the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center.

After a courageous fight, Kevin passed away in November of 2015. He continued to devote his time to his family, the business, and the CSC Foundation right to the end.

In addition to finding a cure for cancer, the CSC Foundation is passionate about ending hunger in America. This cause is a natural fit for our foundation since, as a restaurant concept founded with an appreciation for health and family, feeding families in need closely aligns with who we are as an organization. Food insecurity affects one in six people in America, reaching every community in every state. The CSC Foundation partners with Chicken Salad Chick locations in our various markets to give back to local food banks and food-related charities.

True to our mission of spreading joy, enriching lives, and serving others, we’re honored to have the ability to give back through our Chicken Salad Chick Foundation. Through this foundation, we have tremendous opportunities to impact our friend’s and neighbors’ lives in need and, in doing so, help secure the future of our philanthropy by setting a positive example across the Chicken Salad Chick organization. Whether fighting cancer or feeding the hungry, this foundation allows us to affect the lives of so many in our communities, as well as on a much broader level.
