MIAMI, Aug. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Proving its commitment to brand values such as Showing We Care, Stepping Up, Working Together, and bettering the communities it serves, Church's Chicken® has announced it will be continuing its partnership with 4-year-old Austin Perine by providing 250 lunches for the tiny superhero's next feeding event in Miami, FL. The brand previously joined forces with Austin at an Atlanta-area feeding in June of this year that benefitted close to 300 people in need of a hearty meal. The Miami event will be held on Sunday, September 2nd at Camillus House in Miami – located at 1603 NW 7th Avenue, Miami, FL 33136.
"We are honored to continue to stand beside Austin as he helps those who are less fortunate," said Laura Reese, Senior Director of Digital, Media, and Public Relations for Church's. "We've long believed that the best way to make a positive difference in our communities is to be involved and have the right attitude. Austin both motivates us and inspires us to maintain our commitment to our guests and the neighborhoods where they live and work. We're so pleased to be able to contribute to his mission."
The thoughtful little boy first caught the attention of the media in his hometown of Birmingham, Alabama, where he started out by handing out chicken sandwiches to some of the city's homeless. Each of Austin's meals also comes with a free positive thought to lift up spirits. His favorite saying, "Don't forget to show love" has become so popular it is now the theme of Austin's ongoing efforts - #ShowLove.
At the Camillus House event in Miami, Church's will be providing meals consisting of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and Honey-Butter Biscuits™ for Austin to hand out between 12 noon and 1 pm. Camillus House will be providing drinks for meal recipients.
