“At McDonald’s, we’re proud to be continuing our long-standing support of local charities,” said Brad Haines, local McDonald’s Franchise Owner. “This day is a true celebration of the power of community, and it was great to have so much support from our guests and volunteers. I am proud to announce that we had another successful McHappy Day in support of two very worthwhile organizations.”

This was the 25th McHappy Day fundraiser nationally with a dollar from every Big Mac, Happy Meal and hot McCafé beverage sold going to children’s charities.

McHappy Day was May 2nd.
