McHappy Day

McHappy Day

McHappy Day saw $1 from every Bic Mac, Happy Meal and McCafe beverage go to Ronald McDonald House Charities Canada that bring support, care and smiles to local families and children.

The victor was the man who garnered the most votes through the event web site, with each vote being a $10 donation to Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Louisiana. "We strongly believe in community and giving back to the neighbourhoods where we live and work in".

As well, a generous donation to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southwestern Ontario, from the Lambton Shrine Club Motor Corps was presented. The Ronald McDonald House keeps kids, youth, and families off of the streets.

On Wednesday, May 3, McDonalds' locations around the Okanagan and Canada celebrated McHappy Day. "I am so thankful and inspired by the kindness and generosity of Canadians from coast to coast".

RMHC Canada is the national foundation of support for Canada's 15 Ronald McDonald Houses, 16 Ronald McDonald Family Rooms and 2 Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles across the country. There are many circumstances that can lead families to struggle with housing. Over the year 619 families have taken advantage of that program.

The facility provides a home-away-from-home environment for seriously ill or injured children and their families.

Local McDonald's Owner Brad Haines says they're proud to be continuing their long-standing support of local charities.
