Help­ing bet­ter the lives of chil­dren

The Compass - - OPIN­ION -

“Our ul­ti­mate goal is to help bet­ter the lives of chil­dren in New­found­land and Labrador,” Scott stated.

When com­pleted, the Ron­ald Mcdon­ald house will be the first in the prov­ince and will bring the to­tal num­ber of Cana­dian Ron­ald Mcdon­ald Houses to 13.

It has been 17 years since a new Ron­ald Mcdon­ald House has opened in Canada. Lo­cated within a five minute walk from the Janeway Chil­dren’s Hospi­tal, the new house will sup­port fam­i­lies from across New­found­land and Labrador who have to travel to St. John’s for their child’s med­i­cal treat­ment.

With a cap­i­tal re­quire­ment of $4 mil­lion to bring a Ron­ald Mcdon­ald House to New­found­land and Labrador, Mcdon­ald’s Res­tu­ar­ants across this prov­ince are do­nat­ing 100 per cent of all pro­ceeds from this year’s Mchappy Day.
