McDonald’s Gives Back To Amarillo. Where’s The Money Going?
The power of giving back.
There's a perception that big companies don't do anything for local communities, but one restaurant is changing that narrative.
McDonald's is back with their "McDonald's Gives Back Days" program, and Amarillo is going to benefit big time from it.
Tomorrow, January 25th is the day you need to mark down on your calendar. Stop by McDonald's for one of your three meals, order up your favorite menu items then pat yourself on the back. You have officially helped the community by doing so.
The question is, who did you just help out by doing that? This time around, it's the Amarillo Wesley Community Center. Found in the heart of the Hispanic Barrio at 1615 S. Roberts, it's the centerpiece of the area.
A lot of improvements have been, and are being made to that area and this is just another thing that's going to help. Community centers are such an integral part of ANY city. It's where the community can gather, get exercise, day care (at most) among many other things. Problem is, they don't typically get all the funding they need to upkeep the building and programs offered.
So why did McDonald's choose this specific place to give back to? As McDonald's Director of Marketing Brandon Clavel told NewsChannel 4, “The Wesley Community Center’s mission is to maximize individual potential and community empowerment,” and the McDonald's Gives Back program is all about community empowerment.
Portions of all sales from participating McDonald's locations in both Amarillo and Canyon will go towards the AWCC, so feel free to indulge in some McDonald's favorites!
