On Wednesday, May 11th, McHappy Day, Orillia McDonald’s restaurants will partner with Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital (OSMH) to support the Soldiers’ Paediatric Unit. Funds raised will aid the purchase of syringe pumps and vital signs monitors at Soldiers’ and support Ronald McDonald House Toronto.
Local owner/operators Jason & Jennifer O’Neill welcome everyone on May 11th to enjoy any menu item knowing that a portion of proceeds from everything sold that day will directly impact the lives of families within the Soldiers’ community.
Since 1977, McDonald’s Canada, its franchisees, and guests have raised nearly $66 million for Ronald McDonald House and children’s charities across Canada. Since 1981, Ronald McDonald House Toronto has been a place to call home for families with seriously ill children undergoing treatment. The house keeps families together and close to the care they need.
Syringe pumps remove the potential for human error when administering what is often lifesaving medication to neonates and small children at Soldiers’. Small but mighty, this vital piece of equipment can intervene in a life or death situation as it calculates the precise dosage needed to endure the safety of our smallest soldiers.
This is the 28th McHappy Day. As part of the fundraising initiative, more than 1,400 McDonald’s restaurants across Canada raise money to support local children’s charities, such as Ronald McDonald House and OSMH. To date, McHappy Day has raised nearly $80,000 for Soldiers’ Paediatric Unit. Soldiers’ is proud to be part of one of the more than 3,400 communities across Canada touched by the overwhelming generosity of McDonald’s on McHappy Day.
