McHappy to McHelp McHospice Prince Edward – Wed., May 11

CHEERS! from Hospice Prince Edward Executive Director Nancy Parks, to all those who supported and volunteered at McHappy Day May 11th.
“McHappy Day raised  $2,697.99 to support Hospice Prince Edward children’s grief support groups.  Across Canada, McDonald’s more than 1,430 McDonald’s restaurants raised $3.4 million, which in turn will help thousands of Canadian children in need. Hospice Prince Edward volunteers as well as community members representing numerous business donated their time to support the H.P.E.  H.P.E. would like to thank all the people who came out and volunteered and made a purchase or gave a donation for McHappy Day.
“All of that adds up to a lot of good reasons to be McHappy for a lot of young people!”

Local celebrities, media representatives, politicians and other Prince Edward County VIPs are helping McDonald’s in Picton join the stores across the nation in raising millions of dollars to benefit children’s charities through McHappy Day.
McHappy Day brings together the national restaurant network with local and professional athletes, business associates, politicians, suppliers, media personalities and other local VIPs, all for one simple cause – to help children in need. Visitors to the Picton McDonalds Wednesday, May 11 will be donating to the Hospice Prince Edward to support children’s grief support groups.
During McHappy Day, more than 1,400 McDonald’s restaurants across Canada donate $1.00 from every Big Mac® sandwich, brewed premium coffee and Happy Meal® sold to local children’s charities across Canada.

Since McHappy Day was first introduced in 1977, the national one-day fundraising event has raised more than $30 million for Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC) of Canada, the Ronald McDonald House® program and local children’s charities across Canada.  In addition, McDonald’s donates 10 cents from every Happy Meal sold every day in Canada to RMHC.
