May 2 is McHappy Day, and McDonald’s restaurants across Canada are giving back to charities in support of children and their families. One dollar from the sale of every Happy Meal, Big Mac and hot beverage at participating locations will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House and select local charities depending on the region.
In Salmon Arm, a portion of the proceeds of 2018’s McHappy Day will be donated to the Shuswap Children’s Association to support their efforts at ensuring the healthy development of children and families in the Shuswap.
Customers are also able to make their own donations, either directly to the Shuswap Children’s Association or through the Ronald McDonald House charity by purchasing a card which they could then sign and display on the restaurant walls.
To date, the McHappy Day initiative has raised over $67 million for charities.
