McDon­ald’s presents $700 check to Cen­ter for Chil­dren

Maryland Independent - - Busi­ness -

The McDon­ald’s restau­rants in Wal­dorf and La Plata do­nated al­most $700 raised through their “McCafe for Cause” fundraiser in May to the Cen­ter for Chil­dren. The restau­rants do­nate 50 per­cent of McCafe prod­uct sales each Mon­day to a dif­fer­ent non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tion each month with the goal of rais­ing money for 12 area non-prof­its this year. Par­ris St­ed­man, the Mar­ket­ing Man­ager for the Wel­burn Or­ga­ni­za­tion, came up with the goal of choos­ing 12 non-prof­its in their mar­ket to des­ig­nate as a “McCafe for A Cause” bene­fac­tor, one each month for the year. The “McCafe for A Cause” is a pro­gram where each Mon­day of the month, 50 per­cent of all rev­enue from each McCafe sold goes to that par­tic­u­lar non­profit. “To­day we had the plea­sure of pre­sent­ing a check to our May McCafe for A Cause re­cip­i­ent, Cen­ter for Chil­dren,” St­ed­man said in a press re­lease. “Thank you so much for all that you do for our com­mu­nity and Charles County.” The Wel­burn Or­ga­ni­za­tion op­er­ates the two McDon­ald’s restau­rants in La Plata as well as the restau­rant on Crain High­way in Wal­dorf, next to the Out­back Steak­house. The Cen­ter for Chil­dren is ded­i­cated to the pre­ven­tion and treat­ment of child abuse and the pro­mo­tion of pos­i­tive men­tal health through cri­sis in­ter­ven­tion, ther­apy, ed­u­ca­tion and ad­vo­cacy in South­ern Mary­land.
