Volunteers happy to help
VOLUNTEERS from Wellington and Dubbo Mcdonalds stores visited Orange’s Ronald Mcdonald House on September 19, gaining greater insight into what the facility provides. Whilst there, the 25 helpers were also able to lend a hand to fellow volunteers onsite by cleaning out the shed, window washing, raking leaves, gardening and mowing the lawn. Afterwards, they cooked a barbecue lunch provided by the house.
Everyone who went along for the day was over the moon about lending a hand.
They also said it was a real eye opener to see how much volunteer work and donations are required to keep the house running and that it’s inspiring to see that level of work.
Mcdonalds management were pleased to show the staff that it’s not just about Big Macs and that working on Mchappy Day is a great way to give. In light of the trip’s success, the group were grateful to the Orange team and hope to make the trip an annual event.
Show your support for this year’s Mchappy Day on October 14 by buying a Big Mac or making a donation to the Mcdonald’s charity.
Mchappy Day is the major annual fundraiser for Ronald Mcdonald House Charities, assisting seriously ill children and their families, benefiting 120,000 Australian families in the past 30 years.
Last year, $3.8M was raised for the cause.
