The McTeacher’s Night Thursday at the McDonald’s on Hwy. 144, next to Publix, raised more than $1,000 in three hours, according to McDonald’s spokesperson Danielle Yates.
During a McTeacher’s Night, teachers and staff work at McDonald’s for the evening, cleaning the dining room, greeting customers and handing out food at the drive-through window. In exchange, McDonald’s donates 20 percent of sales during the McTeacher’s Night time period to the teachers’ school. All tips go to the school, as well.
Yates said Richmond Hill Primary received $922 from the restaurant’s sales and another $176 in tips for a grand total of $1,098.
“McTeacher’s Night is an opportunity for schools to raise funds for their upcoming programs, field trips and special initiatives that better the students' well being and supports their education,” Yates said. “McDonald’s Restaurants are committed to being part of their communities and are a proud supporter of education.”
McDonald’s is hosting First Christian Academy for a McTeacher Night from 5 to 8 p.m. Monday at the restaurant by Publix on Hwy. 144 south of Richmond Hill.
First Christian teachers and staff will be on hand volunteering at the restaurant and the academy will also receive 20 percent of the store’s sales during the three-hour period.
