It requires a few steps, but it might mean $75,000 for Friends of Down Syndrome from the Chick-fil-A Foundation True Inspiration Awards. Here’s the scoop. In the last year, Chick-fil-A at Deerbrook Mall in Houston hired two of the students from Down Syndrome Academy. Now, Friends of Down Syndrome is a finalist in the Southwest Region to receive a $75,000 grant. Download the Chick-fil-A app (from the App Store or Google Play) and follow these easy steps to vote. And share widely, please.
