Participating in McHappy Day

When McDonald's opened up a new location at the Côte Saint-Luc Shopping Centre,  I knew owner  Pierre Brunet would continue his good work in the community. Pierre owns 15 franchises, including the food court kiosk at Cavendish Mall.

May 7 was McHappy day at 1,400 McDonald`s locations in Canada.  A dollar from every Big Mac, Happy Meal and hot drink sold is donated to Ronald McDonald Houses and other local children’s charities. Over $42 million has been raised  to help thousands of Canadian families and their sick kids since 1977.

In 1982, Ronald McDonald House Charities Canada was founded to be the everlasting organization that would support Ronald McDonald Houses and their programs in Canada. Ronald McDonald Houses provide a home away from home for out of town families with sick children being treated at a nearby hospital.  We have supported the location next to Ste. Justine`s Hospital for many years.

Councillor Dida Berku, Tracyan Williams, Ruth Kovac, Jeffrey Ferreira, Don Martin and myself.


I joined Councillors Ruth Kovac and Dida Berku at the Côte Saint-Luc Shopping Centre location. Upon my arrival they were busy selling special merchandise such as caps and aprons to add to the fundraising opportunities. Managers Don Martin and Jeffrey Ferreira were happily greeting customers,  who were being very generous.

Bravo McDonald`s!
