On Saturday, Chick-fil-A is partnering with The Chapel to host a nonperishable food collection from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. The items collected will benefit the Community CARE Center.

The restaurant's opening this week brought nearly 80 new jobs and provided free meals for a year to the first 100 adults in line for the opening Thursday. A group of 96 Chick-fil-A enthusiasts formed a tent city in the parking lot on a cold and blustery Wednesday. Many camped out over night to be part of the promotion.
