Although this is the April report, I am including an event from May. Yesterday, May 2nd, was McHappy Day. Across the country McDonald’s were helping to raise money for Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). $1 from every Big Mac, McCafe or Happy Meal went to support the RMHC. In addition to the store promotion, socks are sold to help support local community initiatives. Luckily, the GPFFCF was selected as one of two recipients (the other being Ronald McDonald House Edmonton) to receive the proceeds of any socks sold. We had members across the city yesterday spaced across all meal times. Thank you to Jazmyn, Brothers Seeley, Tom Huete, Dixon, Leffingwell, Kutsiuruba, Lockert, Dell, Inskip and Renyk for helping sling socks. Whether you were at the Drive Thru line, in the window or making McCafe’s every bit helped raise the most money from sock sales to date. Yesterday the Grande Prairie McDonald locations helped raise $23,980!! $11,990 will be our total fundraised for the Grande Prairie Firefighters Charitable Foundation! This is a huge donation that we look forward to donating to deserving causes down the road!
