Lynchburg, VA - You have a few more hours to help impoverished families and genocide survivors in Rwanda all by eating at Chick-fil-A. It's called the Bucks for Clucks campaign, and a Bedford nonprofit is behind it.
Rwandan Hugs has set up camp at the Chick-fil-A on Candler's Mountain Road in Lynchburg to help out.
Their goal is to raise money so a thousand live chickens can be bought for 500 Rwandan families this holiday.
Organizers say a chicken can provide 300 eggs a year.
In the lives of these people in Rwanda, this is hope, this is a huge
difference. This is a turnaround in their ability to feed their
families and live productive lives," said Rev. Jamie Osborne, the campaign coordinator.
The group will be at the fast food chain until 10 p.m. Wednesday.
