There are a lot more happy children and families thanks to the generosity of South Delta.
More than $15,000 was raised on Wednesday by patrons of McDonald’s restaurants in Ladner and Tsawwassen at McHappy Day.
McHappy Day returned with in-person festivities after the past few years were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Delta Police Chief Neil Dubord, and Deputy Chief Michelle Davey were joined by other officers at both restaurants as well as Delta firefighters selling McHappy Day socks at the drive-thru’s to support children at Reach Child and Youth Development Society and Ronald McDonald house.
Irish dancers, the Delta Secondary theatre company and dancers from Studio West performed outside in the afternoon and crafts, tattoos and prize wheel fun was available to children throughout the day.
Reach Society volunteers manned these activities under tents supplied by the TOOB in case of rain, but the weather held.
A percentage of all food sales on McHappy Day at South Delta McDonald’s restaurants will be donated to Reach Society. Reach Society is grateful to local McDonald’s owner/operator Steve Krawchuk, his staff, patrons and all volunteers who came out and made McHappy Day such a success.
