A recent McTeacher’s Night at the McDonald’s on Hwy. 144 raised more than $300 for First Christian Academy, 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 $341.87 from the restaurant’s sales.
“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 in a press release.
“McDonald’s Restaurants are committed to being part of their communities and are a proud supporter of education.”
McDonald’s is hosting Richmond Hill Elementary School for a McTeacher Night from 5 to 8 p.m. Oct. 20 at the restaurant by Publix on Hwy. 144 south of Richmond Hill.
RHES teachers and staff will be on hand volunteering at the restaurant and the school will also receive 20 percent of the store’s sales during the three-hour period.
