After a one year hiatus, McHappy Day will return with a focus on Drive-Thru, Curbside and Delivery Guests.
Local McDonald’s owners Marcia and Todd Finlayson are thrilled to be welcoming back the Markham community to McHappy Day on September 22.
“There are many ways the community can get involved to raise funds for the Ronald McDonald Family Room at Markham Stouffville Hospital,” Marcia explains. “Guests will be able to purchase new Digital Hearts, Round -Up their purchase to the next dollar and purchase promotional items, all this, in addition to 10 per cent of their purchase being donated to this great cause.”
Throughout the year, Marcia and Todd also raise funds by donating 10 cents from every Happy Meal sold, five cents from every cookie sold and significant funds from the ‘Fries for Good’ campaign that runs a couple of times per year. These campaigns add up to over $50,000 per year.
“In addition to our day to day fundraising, the McHappy Day campaign itself will raise $165,000 with $120,000 of this coming from the work of the Community Fundraising group operated by wonderful members of the Stouffville and Markham communities,” Todd says. “We are also thrilled to have corporate sponsors this year with Markville Ford being a Platinum sponsor. These corporate relationships offer a real ‘leg up’ in our fundraising efforts each year.”
“We hope everyone marks their calendar for September 22 and comes out to support this wonderful cause,” Marcia urges. “The need for help has never been greater with costs to operate these facilities up significantly and critical fund-raising events almost non-existent throughout the course of the pandemic.”
