Atholville – Campbellton, N.B. – During this year’s McHappy Day held on May 2nd, which was McHappy Day’s 25th anniversary, an amount of $2,500 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. This donation will be used to purchase a NeoBlue lamp for Obstetrics-Gynecology. Ms. Mélissa Lagacé, Resource Nurse of Obstetrics at the Campbellton Regional Hospital, is very thankful for this piece of equipment that will facilitate treatment of jaundice in newborns.
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. Yves Goudreau, Chairperson of the Friends of Healthcare Foundation would like to thank the 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. Natasha Legacy and Ms. Rachel Dubé, who has brilliantly coordinated the McHappy Day event for the McDonald’s restaurants that he operates. We hope to see you again next year.
