May 7 will mark the arrival of the 21st McHappy Day, McDonald's Canada's national fundraising event. As part of this one-day fundraising initiative, more than 1,400 McDonald's restaurants across the country including McDonald's in Sackville will raise money to support local children's charities such as Ronald McDonald House.
"At McDonald's, we have always been committed to giving back to the communities we serve," said Dan Moore, owner-operator of McDonald's in Sackville, Amherst and Shediac.
"On McHappy Day, we bring together our employees, our customers, our suppliers and our friends in support of local charities dedicated to improving the lives of children in communities large and small right across Canada - including our own Ronald McDonald House Atlantic Canada."
In Sackville, $1 from the sale of every Big Mac sandwich, Happy Meal, and hot McCafé beverage sold on May 7 will benefit Ronald McDonald House.
In addition, many restaurants are holding fundraising events leading up to McHappy Day.
As part of the McHappy Day celebrations, McDonald's Canada franchisees and employees will be joined by a variety of special guests, sports and media personalities, politicians and entertainers as they greet customers and help raise money for children in cities and towns across the country.
