Chick-fil-A to stop donating to Salvation Army as LGBT pressure continues

Fast-food favorite Chick-fil-A will no longer donate to The Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, according to a Monday announcement.

“We made multi-year commitments to both organizations and we fulfilled those obligations in 2018,” a spokeswoman for Chick-fil-A told the Thomson Reuters Foundation, adding the company would focus its giving on “education, homelessness and hunger.”

“Additionally, the Foundation will no longer make multiyear commitments and will reassess its philanthropic partnerships annually to allow maximum impact. These partners could include faith-based and non-faith-based charities,” according to a web statement on Monday.

DID CHICK-FIL-A FORGET IT’S CLOSED ON SUNDAY?

Chick-fil-A has been targeted by LGBTQ groups over the donations. For example, students at West Linn High School in Oregon staged a walkout because the company’s food truck was allowed to be at football games.

The Chick-fil-A Foundation has donated millions to both Christian organizations, according to Reuters. It has committed $9 million to initiatives supporting education and fighting homelessness and hunger in 2020, according to its website.

Chick-fil-A beat out reigning champion In-N-Out and became America’s favorite fast food according to Market Force’s Fast Food Market Research Report in August. ↓source↓

Salvation Army Fires Back After Chick-fil-A Ends Partnership with the American Charity

FaithWire – Not long after the Salvation Army bell ringers began their volunteer work this morning, Chick-fil-A announced it would no longer be partnering with the beloved and iconic American charity. The decision from the Atlanta-based restaurant chain, whose core mission is “to glorify God,” came the same day the Salvation Army kicked off its 129th Red Kettle Campaign, an annual initiative synonymous with the holiday season in the U.S.

In the fiscal year 2018, Chick-fil-A donated $115,000 to the Salvation Army. But that will be no more, according to a statement released Monday by the quick-service restaurant. The brand plans to “deepen its giving to a smaller number of organizations,” and that no longer includes the 154-year-old Salvation Army.

“We’re saddened to learn that a corporate partner has felt it necessary to divert funding to other hunger, education, and homelessness organizations — areas in which the Salvation Army, as the largest social services provider in the world, is already fully committed,” read a statement from the Salvation Army, according to CNN.

Opinion: The statement is particularly biting because Chick-fil-A said it was ending the partnership with The Salvation Army in order to focus on “education, homelessness, and hunger.” Clearly, the above statement from the Salvation Army is referencing this fact.
