City crew grills 600 pounds of donated chicken for storm relief

— Tyson donated 600 pieces of chicken for the tornado recovery effort but did not have anyone who could cook that much meat in a day.

Athens Gas Department Manager Steve Carter offered the services of his grilling crew, comprised of gas department employees who cook for nonprofit projects.

“It was a way we could get involved in the relief effort,” said Carter, who spent all day Friday preparing and grilling the donated poultry.

First responders and storm survivors at Seven Mile Post Road Church spent Friday afternoon and evening enjoying the culinary talents of the grilling crew, according to city spokeswoman Holly Hollman.
