Chick-Fil-A Employees Band Together to Help Homeless Co-Worker

Hooray for Yuletide good deeds.

A group of Chick-Fil-A workers in North Carolina banded together to ensure one of their fellow employees had a good Christmas. Raleigh's ABC 11 reports that mother of two Sheree Carter began working at Chick-Fil-A in October, at which point she and her family were homeless and moving between shelters and temporary housing.

When Carter finally moved her family into their own home last week, a group of her co-workers (including the owner of the Chick-Fil-A franchise) outfitted it with furniture, dishes, and "even presents for the kids to open Christmas morning." They also gave her cash for a washer and dryer and other needs. The generosity took Carter by surprise; she told ABC 11, "I don't even think they knew that I was homeless because I didn't show it."

While the chicken sandwich chain has developed somewhat of a negative reputation for its anti-gay views, clearly some of its employees are imbued with the spirit of generosity. Watch the local news story, below:
