Wednesday, May 10th is McHappy Day in Canada. A portion of all menu items sold on McHappy Day will be donated to two charities focused on improving children’s health and supporting families: Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital and Ronald McDonald House Charity Toronto.
“We are honoured to once again receive community support from McHappy Day,” said Katy Rea, Director of Philanthropy for the Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital Foundation. “Each donation makes a huge impact, both in our Paediatric department and our community’s health and wellbeing.”
Proceeds from this year’s McHappy Day will go towards the purchase of a Broselow Paediatric Emergency Cart for OSMH’s Paediatric Department.
The color-coded Broselow carts reduce the time it takes for health care providers to identify appropriately sized life-saving equipment and medication dosing that may be required in an emergency. These specialized carts can be utilized for a pre-term infant up to approximately age 12. Broselow carts will become the standard for all paediatric programs across OSMH, including Inpatient and Outpatient Pediatrics, the Emergency Department and Surgical Services.
Since 1981, Ronald McDonald House Charity Toronto has provided comfort and support to local families with sick children as they receive treatment.
“We are thrilled to support our local children and families through McHappy Day,” said Jason O’Neill, Owner/Operator of Orillia McDonald’s Restaurants. “Our community deserves excellent healthcare, and we are proud to help provide new Broselow carts to our local hospital.”
It is a McHappy Day tradition for community leaders and special guests to work alongside the McDonald’s Restaurants crew. Members of the O.P.P and local politicians will be joining representatives from OSMH and the OSMH Foundation to celebrate with generous customers.
Show support for local children and families in need by visiting an Orillia McDonald’s Restaurant location on May 10th and by donating to McHappy Day.
