What better way to support a great cause and meet people than to volunteer an hour at a local McDonalds Restaurant to support ‘McHappy Day’?
‘McHappy Day’ is a special opportunity for all diners to donate a few bucks to support Ronald McDonald House, which will be built in conjunction with B.C. Children’s Hospital. Ronald McDonald House is a place for out-of-town families to stay while their children are undergoing treatment at the Hospital.
This great cause ensures that during a time of great stress and anxiety for a family, they are assured of a supportive and quiet place to stay and to be close to their child facing surgery or other traumatic health issues. Believe it or not, McDonalds Restaurants marked its 20th Anniversary of McHappy Day on May 8th, 2013.
So I want to thank the manager and staff at the (No. 5 Road) McDonalds Restaurant who welcomed me and put me to work over the noon hour, signing up diners for McHappy Day donations. And thanks to all those diners who donated.
