Three area not-for-profit organizations received money from Chick-Fil-A of Joplin.
The restaurant donated more than $6,400 to be divided up between Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Newton and Jasper counties, the Joplin Humane Society as well as Habitat for Humanity.
The money came from the restaurant’s cookies for a cause program. 25 cents from the sale of every cookie sold during the month of October went to the cause.
In all, 25,000 cookies were bought by customers from both store locations in Joplin.
