Breakfast was on the house for the devoted 911 Communication Center team in Coral Springs.
First responders in Florida are logging lengthy hours as they work to help Hurricane Irma victims who need a helping hand. And the Chick-Fil-A in Coral Springs wanted to pay it forward to their police department working tirelessly to support their community.
Last week, the Coral Springs Police Department’s Human Resources manager headed to the popular eatery to pick up breakfast for her 911 dispatch center. But after placing a large order for her hungry team, the Chick-fil-A manager wouldn’t let her swipe her credit card.

The Coral Springs Police Department shared the exchange on Facebook in a post that has now received over 3,600 likes.
“After ordering two dozen breakfast sandwiches, two boxes of coffee and two dozen fruit cups she pulled out her credit card to pay, the manager just walked away and began working on the order and once complete, she tried to pay once again and was refused,” part of the post reads. “The manager said, ‘We are here for our First Responders.’ Chick-fil-A of Coral Springs, we can not thank you enough for your generosity. Many of the 911 Dispatchers you fed left their families days ago and have yet to go home.”
Talk about breakfast for champions—literally.
