By 1:30 on Saturday afternoon, the parking lot of Chick-fil-A in Ellijay was full and a line of cars wrapped arm-like around the building, either in line for drive-thru service or to wait for an available parking space. Inside, customers placed binders, packs of pens, and paper in the wicker donation basket and then stood in line before the counter for their coupon. As customers filed in during lunchtime, more donations were received, breaching the brim of the basket. The crowd was a cross-section of the community, where teenagers, retirees, and young families all seem to pitch in to help those in need. The cause for this charitable coming-together was the community’s need for school supplies.
