The South Delta community will be coming together on McHappy Day, Wednesday May 11 to support children and youth with special needs at Ladner and Tsawwassen McDonald’s restaurants.
Eastlink Community TV was on site at the Ladner restaurant last week interviewing Reach Society’s Development Manager Kristin Bibbs and South Delta McDonald’s owner/operator Steve Krawchuk about the event.
Reach Child and Youth Development Society has been the beneficiary of South Delta McHappy Day since 2009 and the non-profit is grateful to Krawchuk and his staff for their unflagging support.
“We are thrilled to be able to be on site again for McHappy Day with volunteers, entertainment and crafts for kids,” said Bibbs.
Volunteers will be selling McDonald’s merchandise at the drive-thru that will benefit children with extra needs at Reach and a percentage from all menu items purchased during McHappy Day will be donated to the charity. There will be crafts for the kids at lunch time, and after school until dinner time.
The police and firefighters will also be on site and there will be singing, dancing and drama entertainment in tents outside at both restaurants this year in order to minimize communicable disease transmission.
