McHappy Day raises $9,000 in the Comox Valley

  • May. 4, 2018 9:30 a.m.

With the help of 55 volunteers from throughout the Comox Valley, a total of $9,000 was raised at the four local McDonald’s locations on McHappy Day, Wednesday, May 2.

For every Big Mac, Happy Meal or hot McCafé beverage purchased at any of the four Comox Valley locations, $1 was donated to the Comox Valley Child Development Association and Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon.

Each year, McDonald’s Canada franchisees and crew across the country celebrate McHappy Day, a day of community giving in support of Ronald McDonald Houses and other local children’s charities.

“Our team at Comox Valley McDonald’s is proud to provide support for the Child Development Association and Ronald McDonald House,” said Stuart Aldred, local owner/operator. “Thank you to the community, the incredible volunteers who helped out in our restaurants, and our dedicated managers and crew. We are thrilled to be providing this donation.”

With this year’s fundraising, more than $30,000 through McHappy Day has been raised to support the CVCDA’s construction of a new autism centre.
