McHappy Day left a lot of smiling faces in Amherstburg.

The McDonald’s restaurant in Amherstburg has reported record-breaking sales May 3 as part of “McHappy Day.” McDonald’s also credits its volunteers as they had the mayor, the deputy fire chief and “some pretty amazing children” among those who took time to help serve the meals.

With their help, the local McDonald’s was able to raise $3,600 in donations yesterday alone. Over the past two months, the Amherstburg store has raised over $11,000 with $1,170 being raised by the crew members alone using their own money.

“This town is so generous,” said assistant manager Jodi Bratt, who co-ordinates McHappy Day in Amherstburg. “We at McDonald’s cannot thank them enough. As a whole with the Windsor stores included we raised $111,790 and that is $60,000 more than the year before.” All proceeds will go to the Ronald McDonald House in Windsor and a small portion will also go to Big Brothers Big Sisters in Windsor as well.

Sgt. Scott Riddell and Amherstburg police also provided assistance, as they helped direct traffic on Sandwich St. S. to allow guests to enter and exit the building safely.

“Once more I cannot stress how thankful we are to this community for helping us out. We had record-breaking sales yesterday it was an amazing day. Thank you!” said Bratt.
