O’Charley’s Announces Special School Supply Drive for Eastern Kentucky Flood Victims | Company

NASHVILLE, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–August 15, 2022–

O’Charley’s Restaurant + Bar, the American restaurant with 144 locations in 16 states that is home to Great Food and Good Times, is proud to announce a special school supply drive for the victims of the recent flooding in Eastern Kentucky as well as a Teacher Appreciation Week later in August.

This supply drive and Teacher Appreciation Week are part of O’Charley’s Hometown Heroes initiatives that honor local heroes whose tireless service keeps our communities safe and healthy.

“We know that back to school is normally a time of excitement for new beginnings and we wanted to express our support for the communities in Eastern Kentucky impacted by the recent catastrophic flooding,” said CEO Craig Barbier. “Giving back to those in need is the foundation of everything we do at O’Charley’s and we want to help families and communities with ever-needed school supplies. I know our valued guests will help us maximize our impact.

O’Charley’s will be collecting school supplies from participating restaurants and accepting donations online to support families and schools affected by the flooding. The supply campaign will take place from August to mid-September. A “Stock the O’Mobile” event is planned in Knoxville TN once the ride is complete. Members of O’Charley’s team will then drive the O’Mobile to Kentucky to deliver the supplies.

Along with its flood relief efforts, O’Charley’s is also celebrating teachers this month with a special Teacher Appreciation Week August 22-28. During this week, teachers can get a free dessert with any entrée purchase. Teachers only need to present a valid ID or badge. Barber continued“As children and families return to school, we want to honor the service of teachers in all O’Charley communities with our very own Teacher Appreciation Week. We hope this will give them an extra boost at the start of the new school year.

The school supply drive and upcoming Teacher Appreciation Week are just two of O’Charley’s Hometown Heroes latest initiatives. As part of Hometown Heroes, O’Charley’s team members hosted appreciation events and delivered thousands of free meals to first responders, healthcare workers, teachers and other heroes over the years to say thank you.
