GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — One of Grand Junction’s most popular fast-food chains, Chick-fil-a, is closed for remodeling. But its staff is using their time away from the restaurant, to give back to the community.
The Grand Junction Chick-fil-a owners are making sure their employees remain on pay-roll throughout the closure. But, with all their extra time not working in the restaurant, the staff is volunteering around the Grand Valley.
On Thursday, a group of Grand Junction Chick-fil-a employees volunteered at The Willows, which is Colorado Canyons Hospital’s’ memory care facility.
Patients in the facility have not been able to leave since COVID-19 began, so the Chick-fil-a team worked to trim hedges near the resident’s windows and do some general clean up around the facility’s yard.
These acts of kindness, don’t stop at Colorado Canyons.
“We are serving from Palisade to Fruita, it’s been adventurous… we have 80 employees who are serving the community,” says Kim Walsh, Co-Owner of the Grand Junction Chick-fil-a.
The Grand Junction Chick-fil-a is expected to re-open by the end of September, or early October.
