The Fraser Valley Child Development Centre (FVCDC) received a $5,000 cheque, thanks to community contributions to McHappy day.

McHappy Day was held on May 8, during which McDonald’s across Canada, including Abbotsford locations, helped to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House and other children’s charities.

FVCDC provides a wide range of services to children whose development is delayed, or who are at risk. Most services to clients are provided free of charge.

In Abbotsford, $1 from every Big Mac, Happy Meal or Hot McCafe beverage sold was donated to the FVCDC and Ronald McDonald Children’s Charities.

Special guest celebrities, including local politicians, police and fire rescue workers volunteered their time to serve customers and help raise funds.

Started in 1977, McHappy Day has raised more than $38 million across Canada.
