Today is McHappy Day, a wonderful, fun event in which McDonald's restaurants and other businesses across the country band together to help support families in Canada. Today - May 4th - $1 from every Big Mac® sandwich, Happy Meal®, and hot McCafé® beverage will go to RONALD McDONALD HOUSES and other local children's charities.
Earlier today, employees of the Finch Auto Group had the privilege of helping out with the McHappy Day festivities at restaurants throughout London. Two representatives from each of our London stores spent an hour manning the till, working the drive-thru and collecting donations in support of this wonderful cause.
Finch Chevrolet General Manager Jordin Finch and Service Manager Tim Polley set up camp outside the restaurant at 530 Oxford Street collecting donations for the cause with the help of a couple of London's finest. Meanwhile, Mercedes-Benz London's General Manager Rob Stockie found himself working the till while his brother and Sales Consultant Adam Stockie pitched in at the drive-thru window at the Hyde Park & Fanshawe Park restaurant.
Hass Hijazi, General Manager at Finch Hyundai, also got to test his skills in the drive-thru while his son Jamal collected donations for the cause at the Bradley & Wellington McDonald's. Last but not least, Dan Dale (General Manager & Partner ) and his wife Joanna Zietek (Sales Coordinator) of Finch Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram handed out food and smiles at the Wharcliffe & Base Line location.
The dealerships of the Finch Auto Group have always made a strong commitment to helping support great causes like this one in order to do our part to give back to the community that has always supported us. Everyone who took part in McHappy Day today got a first-hand look at the way that Londoners rally around important causes to support one another. It truly was a beautiful sight to see.
