It’s McHappy Day!

One dollar from sales of Big Macs, Happy Meals and hot beverages will be donated

On Wednesday, May 3rd, McDonalds’ locations will be celebrating McHappy Day.

One dollar from sales of Big Macs, Happy Meals and hot beverages will be donated to local charities and The Ronald McDonald House. The theme for this year’s Central McHappy Day is “Superheroes.”

The Ronald McDonald House is on site at the BC Children’s Hospital, and it recently increased in size from 13 bedrooms to 73 bedrooms. The house sees about 2,000 families from around B.C. and the Yukon each year. The longest stay at the house last year was 373 consecutive nights. The Ronald McDonald House keeps kids, youth, and families off of the streets. There are many circumstances that can lead families to struggle with housing. Remaining on the street makes it difficult for families to recover from homelessness.

You can support the McHappy Day charities by purchasing a Big Mac, Happy Meal, or hot beverage ($1 from each item goes to charity).

You can also purchase raffle tickets for some great gifts and red hearts purchased will be displayed in the stores.
