Wingstop gives out meals during holiday


CHAMPAIGN, Ill.( WCIA)- The Wingstop on Neil Street held their 5th annual “Wingsgiving”. They handed out free meals that included boneless wings, fries, and a roll. They served over 900 hundred people, topping the record from last year.

They followed COVID guidelines by not allowing people into the restaurant, and this led to a line wrapping around the building. Owner Sahil Contractor says he understands people go through tough times and hopes this helped take a burden off.

“Where you come from and what you’ve had to deal with are tough so I always put myself in other people’s shoes. That’s what drives me to do events like this,” he said.

Wings were also served at their location in Springfield.
