McDonald's begins Fries For Good promotion
McDonald's Canada has begun a promotion called “Fries For Good” in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. From May 8 to 21, part of the proceeds from all fries sold by the fast food chain in Canada will be donated to the Canadian Red Cross. The funds will be divided among several relief programs, including the Canadian Emergencies & COVID-19 Response Fund, the Nova Scotia Stronger Together Fund, and other disaster response and preparedness programs nationally.
“With several recent tragedies adding to the hardships already created by the current global pandemic, we wanted to find a way to rally Canadians and support our communities that need it the most right now,” said John Betts, president and CEO of McDonald's Canada. “The ‘Fries For Good’ initiative provides a simple and easy way for all Canadians to contribute to relief efforts coast-to-coast.”
