The Salvation Army expressed disappointment in a “corporate partner” Monday after Chick-fil-A announced it would no longer donate to the ministry and instead would give money to other homeless and hunger charities beginning in 2020.
The move by Chick-fil-A has angered fans and sparked pushback from some of its most well-known supporters, including from Mike Huckabee, who said in a series of tweets the company had “betrayed loyal customers” and “surrendered to anti-Christian hate groups.”
In Aug 2012, I coordinated a national @ChickfilA Appreciation Day after they were being bullied by militant hate groups. Millions showed up. Today, @ChickfilA betrayed loyal customers for $$. I regret believing they would stay true to convictions of founder Truett Cathey. Sad.

Chick-fil-A donated $115,000 to the Salvation Army and $1,650,000 to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes in 2018, according to a tax form released Monday.
But Chick-fil-A said Monday that beginning in 2020, its Foundation would donate to Junior Achievement USA, Covenant House International and local food banks. It is part of a new strategy to “deepen its giving to a smaller number of organizations working exclusively in the areas of education, homelessness and hunger,” according to a press release.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
