National French Fry Day Raises Money for Local Ronald McDonald Houses
July 13th is National French Fry Day
National French Fry Day is this Friday, July 13, and it’s a great opportunity to share how this simple purchase supports families across North Carolina.
EVERY time you purchase an order of fries from McDonald’s restaurants in North Carolina, you’re helping our state’s seven local Ronald McDonald Houses keep families with sick children together and close to the care and resources they need.
Since 2012, McDonald’s across the state have donated more than $1.1 million to our local Houses simply based on french fry orders. Help us celebrate and support our local families this National French Fry Day.
On July 27th, these young salespeople will drop off the proceeds they’ve raised at the House.
There’s still time to join the Lemonade Brigade! To print out a poster for a lemonade stand, visit here.
