With the help of the community, Chicken N Pickle provided nearly 530 rotisserie chicken pot pies to frontline caregivers at Ascension Via Christi’s Wichita hospitals.
Chicken N Pickle announced in November that for every chicken pot pie or $10 gift card purchased on Dec. 16, one would be donated to Ascension Via Christi caregivers.
“My goal was about 300, so this is the most we’ve ever sold with ‘Pie it Forward’!” says Kim Blackman, the company’s community engagement coordinator. “For our kitchen and staff, who were happy and willing to help out, it was all hands on deck. It made us all extremely happy to deliver so many to our community caregivers.”
David Alexander, president of the Via Christi Foundation, who helped coordinate the donation, was overwhelmed by the generous offer and tremendous community response.
“I had no idea there would be so many donated,” says Alexander. “We are just overwhelmed and blown away by the generosity of Chicken N Pickle and the community for donating meals to our associates.”
Says Alexander: “Our associates are blessed to receive the food and equally blessed to see the community supporting them in this tangible way."
