Chick-fil-A employees in Odessa, Texas, worked together to make 500 sandwiches for officers responding to the shooting in the area on Saturday.

The Chick-fil-A on University Boulevard in Odessa partnered with another location in Odessa Town Center to make the sandwiches.

“After heartbreaking events in our community today we planned to close early and send our team home to be with their families,” the branch wrote on Facebook. “As they were walking out of the restaurant an opportunity to feed local law enforcement presented its self and they were given the option to help. Not one person said no.”

The company also praised the attitude of its workers.

“Sometimes light in a dark world looks as simple as a hot chicken sandwich,” the branch wrote. “We just couldn’t be prouder of these helpers and their hearts of gold.”
