The feeling of today resonates as we share our stories with those in need during this time of year. As part of our ongoing World Works efforts, our Freebird's Family has done it again by adopting families around Texas and Oklahoma. Whether it was partnering with military families, those who need food, those who are experiencing life transitions, giving gifts to children who have nothing to unwrap on Christmas morning, we have done a little part by bringing the community into our Freebird's Family.
This year’s Adopt A Family Program was a very moving experience for everyone involved. Each restaurant poured their hearts out into these efforts and it resulted in 41 military families sharing a holiday they will never forget. Below is an email that was received from an appreciative soldier after his experience at our Stone Ridge restaurant location:
“We cannot thank you enough for the wonderful night you gave our family! You are a truly inspirational company with fantastic employees! I serve my country not for recognition but because I want to, but people such as Steve and Matt and there crew make being a Soldier, father, husband and a man that much more worth being and doing! I will continue to praise Freebirds for the fantastic place that rocks my "Dinkle family" with every visit! I look forward to helping Freebirds next year in supporting a Soldier. Thank you from the bottom of my and my family’s heart for all the sacrifices you and yours make to help Soldiers remember that people do care. We hope you have a fantastic Holiday season, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! From Shayne, Delana, Christopher, Bradley, Joshua and Brittany Dinkle rock on!"
