Notes from the Meeting:
The BEREA meeting was held in Pembroke on Tuesday, April 12, 2011.
The program was about Truett
Cathy, the founder and chairman of the
“Chick-fil-A” restaurant chain.
Mr. David Boykin, from the Statesboro’s “Chick-fil-A”
told us how Mr. Cathy became a successful
businessman and one of the country's most generous philanthropists,
but also more personal information about Mr. Cathy’s great faith in
God. Not only has Mr. Cathy helped thousands of high school
and college students, foster children and his employees financial
but he takes a personal interest in the people themselves.
Delia Alexander, from the corporate office in Atlanta, works
very closely with Mr. Cathy. She presented insight into how Mr.
Cathy’s generosity is reflected in his dealings with employees in
the corporate office as well as the franchises. He installed a
state of the art lunchroom, free of charge for his employees, a
daycare for his employees, and a gym on the grounds in the Atlanta
office. All “Chick-fil-A” are closed on Sundays in keeping with his
faith in God. Mr. Cathy is ninety years old and he still continues
to help people in his state, county, and abroad.
