MORE THAN 1,000 TEXAS MCDONALD’S RESTAURANTS HOSTING FUNDRAISER FOR UVALDE COMMUNITY ON JUNE 23
10% of all sales from 11 am – 2 pm will be donated
(DALLAS – June 21, 2022) – More than 1,000 McDonald’s restaurants across Texas are coming together to raise funds to support Uvalde following the recent unspeakable tragedy in their community. Ten percent of lunch sales from 11am until 2pm on Thursday, June 23 at participating restaurants will be donated to the Uvalde community.
Customers can participate in the fundraiser at participating restaurants by ordering lunch for dine-in, via carry-out, at the Drive Thru, on the McDonald’s App or through McDelivery. Proceeds from the fundraiser will be donated to two organizations – the Robb School Memorial Fund and Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) San Antonio.
- The Robb School Memorial Fund is a community fund that has been established with the First State Bank of Uvalde to directly benefit those impacted.
- Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) San Antonio is currently serving family members from Uvalde, and they will continue to do so over the coming weeks, months and years. They have created a special fund to support those families impacted by the tragedy.
“While no amount of money can erase this tragedy, as local small business owners in Texas we feel it’s important we do our part to support the Uvalde community however we can,” said Manuel Pacheco, McDonald’s Owner/Operator. “Together, we can make a difference.”
McDonald’s has a long history of supporting the local neighborhoods our restaurants call home – from offering free meals, supplies and financial assistance around natural disasters, to recognizing those who make our communities a better place each and every day.
