Local McDonald’s restaurants have once again partnered with Markham Stouffville Hospital (MSH) to raise funds to bring much-needed services for patients in Markham and Stouffville closer to home as well as supporting Ronald McDonald House Toronto.
May 2 was the 25th McHappy Day – a McDonald’s Canada’s national fundraising event. As part of this one-day fundraising initiative, more than 1,400 McDonald’s restaurants across the country raise money to support local children’s charities such as Ronald McDonald House and local organizations like MSH. Since McHappy Day started in 1977, more than $66 million has been raised to help Canadian children. The event has gained such popularity over the years that it has grown from a bi-annual event to an annual one.
In Markham and Stouffville, one dollar from the sale of every Big Mac sandwich, Happy Meal or hot McCafé beverage sold will be donated to MSH and Ronald McDonald House Toronto.
