Chick-fil-A Staff Visits Peyton Forest Elementary
Youth and education are two major pillars of the Chick-fil-A Foundation. Many in the Chick-fil-A family share in our dedication to these pillars, which is why Chick-fil-A volunteers had a blast at a recent event at Peyton Forest Elementary School in Southwest Atlanta. In partnership with Page Turners Make Great Learners, 23 Chick-fil-A staff members volunteered their time, and dedicated a day to reading books to the children of Peyton Elementary. After sharing their favorite children’s book with several classrooms, the volunteers explained to the students how reading has impacted their lives and their work.
Page Turners Make Great Learners is an organization that works to instill and expand a love of reading in children. Their goal is to increase literacy rates, therefore expanding opportunities and possibilities for the children they serve.
They day spent with the Peyton Elementary students was both educational and meaningful. Not only did they get to hear new stories, but they also learned how Chick-fil-A staff benefitted from reading as kids themselves. The students were inspired to read more, and apply these lessons to their own lives.
Peyton Forest Elementary serves the Southwest area of Atlanta and is dedicated to intentional, innovative, and inclusive learning. The school believes no child deserves to be left out, regardless of familial income or means. They are dedicated to being a high performing school, where students are inspired to excel.
