McHappy donation helps Hospice help children

McDonald's Kevin McGall and Dan Doyle flank Hospice Prince Edward's Audrey Whitney, Linda Jackson and Stacey Hatch, at the presentation of $2,697.99 for Hospice Prince Edward's grief programming for children.

McHappy smiles were everywhere Tuesday as McDonalds Picton presented $2,697.99 raised during McHappy Day last month, to Hospice Prince Edward.
The funds will used for Hospice Prince Edward children’s grief support groups to provide craft material, play therapy, personal journals and reading resources.
“This year HPE is working with local children who have experienced the lost of a family member or family friend over that past three years,” says Audrey Whitney of HPE. “We provide an environment for children to tell their stories of the person they are missing. By engaging parents and teachers we are able to provide a network of support that is designed to meet the needs of each individual child.”
Hospice Prince Edward children’s grief support programs provide individual support and grief programming to help local children move through their grief journey. Bereavement support is also offered to youth, adults and families of Hospice clients as well as any community member who is experiencing bereavement.
Hospice Prince Edward is a non-profit, non-denominational organization and services are offered free of charge. McDonald’s in Picton joined its restaurants across the nation on McHappy Day, May 11, and raised millions of dollars to benefit children’s charities.
