DRPS officers joined community leaders from across Durham Region as they participated in the 22nd Annual McHappy Day. One dollar from every Big Mac, Happy Meal or McCafe beverage sold is automatically donated to support local charities.
This year the proceeds from Oshawa and Clarington sales will be shared between ProAction Cops and Kids Durham and the Toronto Ronald McDonald House.
Several members of DRPS came out for the event, including Chief Paul Martin who served drive-thru customers at the Ritson Road McDonalds with coffee, lunch and a smile. Members of ProAction Cops and Kids were also on hand along with Oshawa Fire Services and CTV anchor Ken Shaw.
DRPS officers from other divisions lent a hand at various locations in Oshawa, Whitby and Clarington.
Since McHappy Day was first introduced in 1977, the event has raised more than $46 million for Ronald McDonald House Charities Canada, along with Ronald McDonald Houses and local childrens charities across the country.
