McHappy Day at Ironwood McDonald's aids Richmond Society for Community Living
It was McHappy Day at McDonald's restaurants across Canada on Wednesday, and customers at the Ironwood location encountered a couple of celebrity surprises behind the counter.
Global BC meteorologist Mark Madryga and Olympian Alexa Loo joined Richmond Review publisher Mary Kemmis and other Richmond Review staff who volunteered their time for the fundraising effort.
$1 from the sale of every McCafe hot beverage, Happy Meal, and Big Mac sandwich will be donated to the Richmond Society for Community Living.
For more than a decade, McHappy Day has supported Ronald McDonald House BC as well as the Richmond Christmas Fund, Richmond Hospital, Steveston Community Association water park, Richmond Centre for Disability and Touchstone Family Association, among others.
The Richmond Society for Community Living provides programs and services for infants, children and adults who are living with developmental disabilities, and for their families.
"For the past 10 months we have supported their Lending Library which provides adaptive equipment and specialized toys on loan to parents and to child care programs that support children with disabilities through our coin box donations," said owners Christine and Bob Campbell in a press release.
