Restaurant accepting donations to help families

Staff report
Chick-Fil-A on East Innes Street is seeking donations to help the families of the two Salisbury firefighters who died in last week’s blaze.
And the restaurant’s president is offering a considerable amount of help.
Firefighters Victor Isler and Justin Monroe died Friday. On Saturday, workers at Chick-Fil-A placed empty tea jugs on the restaurant’s counters, asking customers to make donations to the firefighters’ families.
Within six hours, $500 was collected.
Trisha Kehn, the store’s manager, said the goal is to raise $5,000 by this coming Saturday. As of Wednesday morning, the store had raised $2,000.
Kehn said that when Dan Cathy, the president of Chick-Fil-A, which is based in Atlanta, was contacted, he said he’d match the $5,000 if the goal is reached by Saturday.
“We’re shooting to give $5,000 to each family,” Kehn said.
