Get fries, do good. Fries for Good is back at McDonald’s supporting RMHC

#FriesForGood is back, but looks a bit different this time. Earlier this year, the fundraising initiative helped to support the Canadian Red Cross. In only two weeks, the initiative raised more than $1.1M. Now, McDonald’s is supporting RMHC to help raise much needed funds to keep families close to their sick child while their child is being treated at a nearby hospital.

Now until November 30, a portion of the proceeds from every size fry purchased at participating McDonald’s Canada restaurants will support RMHC Canada. A simple gesture like buying an order of fries – for you or a friend – can make a BIG difference to the lives of families with sick children.

The initiative comes at a time when RMHC is experiencing revenue declines of up to 60 per cent, while operational costs have increased 30-50 per cent as a result of COVID-19– there’s never been a more important time to give back! In addition, Canadians can also round up their bill to the nearest dollar at the front counter, drive-thru and kiosk at participating restaurants and donate the difference to RMHC.
