CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Chick-fil-a says they will be giving away $5 million to black-led nonprofits and organizations serving communities of color.

The fast food giant says organizations in the Charleston area have the chance to apply for their share of a $5 million pot dedicated to helping under-represented communities.

The grants are called the Chick-fil-A True Inspiration Awards and they range from $50,000 to $350,000. The goal is for Chick-fil-a to help organizations that are making an impact in the areas of hunger, homelessness and education.
