Atholville – Campbellton, N.B. – During this year’s McHappy Day held on May 3, which was McHappy Day’s 24th anniversary, a record amount of $3,843.09 was raised for the Friends of Healthcare Foundation at the McDonald’s restaurants in Campbellton and Atholville, which are both owned by Mr. François Perreault.
Throughout the event, for every Big Mac®, McCafé® beverage, and Happy Meal® sold, the restaurants pledged to donate $1 towards McHappy Day. Of the total amount raised, 75% went to the Friends of Healthcare Foundation and 25% went to Ronald McDonald Houses. This donation will be used to purchase three fetal dopplers for Obstetrics-Gynecology. Ms. Jessie Caron, Nurse Manager of Obstetrics-Gynecology and the Women’s Wellness Clinic at the Campbellton Regional Hospital, is very thankful for these pieces of equipment that will be quite useful for the hospital.
Mr. Jean-Luc Landry, Executive Director of the Friends of Healthcare Foundation, is very proud and appreciative of the support offered by the people of the Restigouche and would like to thank everyone who donated their time during the event.
Mr. Mike Doiron, Chairperson of the Friends of Healthcare Foundation would like to thank the new owner of the local McDonald’s restaurants for choosing the Foundation. “It is through partnerships such as this one that the Foundation can further improve services for the residents of the Restigouche.”
Mr. François Perreault would like to thank the staff of the Campbellton and Atholville McDonald’s restaurants as well as Ms. Sylvette LeBlanc, Ms. Lina Comeau and Ms. Rachel Dubé, who have brilliantly coordinated the McHappy Day event for the McDonald’s restaurants that he operates.
