ODESSA, TX — Chick-fil-A in Odessa saw an opportunity to help the community after the West Texas shooting on Saturday.

The restaurant went on Facebook to post their act of kindness.

They said after the heartbreaking event, they planned to close early and send their team home early to be with family. However, as they were walking out, the restaurant saw an opportunity to feed local law enforcement.

The team was given an option to help, and no one said no.

"Partnering with Chick-fil-A Odessa Town Center they cooked 500 sandwiches and packaged them with the most joyful hearts and a lot of love. Sometimes light in a dark world looks as simple as a hot chicken sandwich. We just couldn’t be prouder of these helpers and their hearts of gold," the post said.

The post went on to say, grateful is not an adequate word to express how they feel about all of the brave first responders, they are the true heroes.
