We’ve got exciting news to share! Owners of McDonald’s in Durham Region have pledged $500,000 in support of Grandview Kids Believe campaign for a New Grandview Children’s Centre in Ajax.

On May 2nd, 22 McDonald’s restaurants in Durham Region will be supporting Grandview on McHappy Day as their first fundraising initiative.

For those who don’t know, McHappy Day is a nationwide fundraising event where $1 from every Big Mac® sandwich, Happy Meal® and any sized hot McCafé® beverage sold will be donated to Canada’s 14 Ronald McDonald Houses and other local children’s charities across Canada.

Last year, eight McDonald stores across the Durham Region participated in McHappy Day in support of Grandview Kids. This year, on May 2, 22 locations across Durham Region will be supporting Ronald McDonald Houses as well as Grandview Kids.

About McDonald’s commitment to Grandview Kids:

McDonald’s has had a long standing relationship of support with Grandview Kids that goes beyond McHappy Day®.

The commitment of Durham Region McDonald’s to help Grandview Kids has brought us our therapy pool, our closed-in accessible playground and the ability to help more kids throughout Durham Region receive the life-changing services provided by Grandview.

“Grandview is an incredibly special place,” says Mike Forman, local McDonald’s owner. “Once you walk into Grandview Children’s Centre, you can see the kids and families working so hard to reach their goals. It’s empowering, encouraging and inspiring. It’s hard to not want to do everything you can to help.”

We are looking forward to continuing this partnership with McDonald’s and are incredibly thankful for their support.
