Several Chick-fil-A restaurants, including the Harker Heights and Killeen locations, are hosting the fifth annual Soup for the Hungry Soul Drive.

Each restaurant will donate an order of soup to their local Salvation Army for every Chick-fil-A chicken tortilla soup or Chick-fil-A hearty breast of chicken soup purchased until 10 p.m. today.

“The drive is unique to this area and we love to support the community,” said Ericka Villarreal, restaurant marketing director for Harker Heights. “This is a great opportunity for us to help our community and do what we can to help others in need.”

During the past four years, the Waco, Killeen and Harker Heights restaurants donated 234 cases of soup and the Temple restaurants donated $6,423.09 to local Salvation Army operations because of the drive.

The Harker Heights restaurant donated 80 cases during the time period. So far, the locally owned franchise has collected 18 cases.

“The Central Texas Chick-fil-A restaurants are thrilled to be partnering with the Salvation Army for Soup for the Hungry Soul for the fifth year,” said Debbie Quarles, restaurant marketing director.

“We hope our customers in each city will help us reach our goal so that we can make a direct impact on those in our communities.”
