Students are heading back to school, football season is gearing up and The Kickin’ Chicken team has come up with a fun way to give back to the community. During the entire month of August, visit any of the five Charleston locations, donate a dollar and get your name on your choice of a Clemson or South Carolina Chickenhead. All monies raised will be donated to The Teacher’s Supply Closet and the Hootie’s Homegrown Round Up Back to School Basics. Both organizations provide much needed supplies to students and teachers in high-poverty schools.
To keep with the friendly in-state rivalry, the stores will also be competing with each other; the store that raises the most money will have their donation matched by the owners of The Kickin’ Chicken.
To the team at The Kickin’ Chicken, being a local business means giving back to the community that supports you. “We are committed to our customers and community and feel that we cannot only raise much-needed funds for these organizations, but we can help educate our guests and staff about the important work these organizations do,” says Chip Roberts, co-founder of The Kickin’ Chicken.
