Church’s Chicken invited parents, students, and families to visit its Calhoun, Georgia, location this fall to earn cash for Calhoun City Schools. For five weeks throughout September and part of October, Church’s will host Spirit Weeks and donate 10 percent of total restaurant sales to schools in the district. September 8–14 will be dedicated to Calhoun Primary, September 15–21 to Calhoun Middle, September 22–28 to Calhoun Elementary, September 29–October 5 to Calhoun Pre-K, and October 6–12 to Calhoun High.
“We know that many of our guests are parents, teachers, students, and administrators and are honored to contribute towards the success of Calhoun City Schools,” says Mark Snyder, executive vice president and global chief marketing officer at Church’s Chicken. “We hope the community will stop by Church’s this fall to indulge in our famous fried chicken while supporting a good cause.”
The school system has served the Calhoun, Gordon County community for over a century and enrolls a growing and diverse population of more than 4,000 students. "Calhoun City Schools is delighted to partner with Church's Chicken as we embrace our community as the classroom,” says Peter Coombe, director of communications for Calhoun City Schools. “We look forward to our students and the Yellow Jacket Nation visiting Church’s during their spirit weeks and showing their support of this growing business.”
