The Durham Regional Police Service served more than just law and order on May 11 by volunteering at the Thickson Rd. & Highway 2 McDonald’s restaurant for McHappy Day.
Deputy Chief Sherry Whiteway, S/Sgt. Bob Roche and civilian member Zel Colacicco all helped with the 17th annual McHappy Day, a national fundraising effort of McDonald’s Canada. For every Big Mac sandwich, McMuffin sandwich and Happy Meal sold, $1 benefits Toronto’s Ronald McDonald House.
“McHappy Day gives us a chance for a meet-and-greet with the public while still helping an incredible cause,” said Deputy Chief Whiteway. “Taking a meal order or pouring a soft drink is just another way I can serve our community.”
Since its inception, McHappy Day has raised more than $31 million for Ronald McDonald’s Houses and other local charities. DRPS members will also be participating at Tim Hortons restaurants for Camp Day on June 1.
