FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – McHappy day is back at McDonald’s locations across Canada, including Fort St. John and Dawson Creek, on May 11th.

A portion of every item sold at McDonald’s restaurants in the Energetic City will be split between the Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon and the Fort St. John Child Development Centre.

Customers can also purchase McHappy socks, pins or bracelets.

Last year, $9,100 was raised in Fort St. John, with just over $4,500 going towards the CDC’s Kids Connect program, catered explicitly to kids with autism.

Proceeds from Dawson Creek locations will go towards the BC and Yukon RMH and the South Peace Child Development Centre.

McHappy Day raised more than $4.5 million across Canada in 2021.

Since being celebrated in 1977, McHappy Day has raised nearly $66 million for Ronald McDonald Houses and local Canadian children’s charities.
